The physical effects of climate change – unpredictable rainfall, rising sea levels and frequent extreme weather events, to name but a few – will have serious consequences for international peace and security, and particularly for food security and forced displacement.

Professor Morisetti will discuss why the security community needs to engage in developing a comprehensive understanding of both how the risks of climate change interact with other threats to the prosperity of nations and their wellbeing, and what contributions need to be made to mitigate such challenges.

The briefing will be chaired by Dan Marks, Research Fellow for Energy Security, RUSI.
