CHARTING A COURSE OF ACTION FOR AN URGENT CLIMATE RISK ASSESSMENT FOR AUSTRALIA
ONLINE FORUM | 3 AUGUST 2022, 4PM
The depth of the security risks and threats associated with the climate emergency are increasing rapidly for Australia and our region. As the Australian Government prepares to implement its commitment to develop our nation’s first comprehensive climate-security risk assessment, what pathways and principles can help us chart a course to capture the full range of threats? This forum will examine the implementation challenges and explore successful international efforts to assess the growing climate and security risks in a dangerously warming world.
