Presented by Jackson Hole Center for Global Affairs
Jackson Hole Global Forum: Climate Change and National Security
Note from Jackson Hole Global Forum:
Out of an abundance of caution in response to the coronavirus, and because the event would be bringing in speakers internationally and from across the country, the Jackson Hole Center of Global Affairs has decided to postpone their Global Forum: Climate Change and National Security to a date later in the year. This is a JHCGA organizational decision and not representative of federal guidelines from the Center for Disease Control.
For further updates please subscribe to updates from JHCGA at www.jhcga.org/contact or contact Nathan Wendt, Vice President, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also encourage you to check out the CDC's resources about the outbreak at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/, where they are working to promote smart health measures and counter disinformation regarding coronavirus.
The Second Jackson Hole Global Forum: Climate and National Security, hosted by the Jackson Hole Center for Global Affairs in partnership with the Center for Climate and Security will bring U.S. and global military leaders, security professionals, business executives, policy leaders and citizens together to advance policy and business steps that respond to the security implications of a changing climate.
Consistent with advice of recent Defense Secretary James Mattis, who argued for a “whole-of-government response” to climate change, the Forum will assess and identify ways to prepare for climate change risks to national and global security; examine forward-looking climate action and steps to support partner nation resilience to climate change risks, and examine the impacts of climate change on communities and measures to strengthen resilience.
The Forum will strengthen public awareness and the will to respond.
