Climate Change: threat amplifier

National Security College | Professional course



A national security risk in its own right, climate change has been characterised as a threat amplifier by a range of pundits. This two-day program considers the current science and projections, and then explores potential impacts on Australian national security through the lens of health, regional conflict, migration, defence, food and human security and more. Hear from a range of academic, private and public sector experts on how we might best tackle the issues and mitigate the impacts.

The program is designed for anyone in or outside of government who would benefit from a greater understanding of the national security impacts of climate change. There is no minimum security clearance requirement.
