Climate Security American Security ProjectThe American Security Project’s Climate Security page discusses strategic guidance, explaining how the effects of climate change—extreme weather, droughts, wildfires, sea level rise, flooding, and warming polar oceans—present compounding risks to national security. These climate risks act as an accelerant of instability and a threat multiplier, especially in fragile states.

This page lists past National Defense Strategies that have addressed climate risks as an accelerant of instability and a threat multiplier, especially in fragile states. Through this page, browsers can access blog posts, “Must Reads,” and reports related to climate and security considerations. There is also a list of upcoming events such as conversations with panelists that include congressmen, military officials, and/or corporate CEOs.

There are links to additional pages for more information on topics such as Climate Change and U.S. Military Bases, Preparing for Climate Security Threats, and the Costs of Climate Change.
