FIU in DC: Turning the Tide: National Security Risks in the Face of Sea Level Rise
This is a past event.
Tuesday, June 29 at 1:00pm to 2:00pmVirtual Event
Sea level rise and more extreme weather events are causing risks to military instillations, readiness, operations and strategy. The Department of Defense manages more than 1,700 military installations that may be affected by sea-level rise. How can we prepare the military bases in the risk of sea-level rise damage and what are the priority areas when it comes to these issues?
Join the American Security Project and Florida International University for a briefing on recommended solutions when it comes to sea level rise and the risks it poses to our national security. The conversation will include David Haines, Senior Fellow for Climate Security at American Security Project and Dr. Jayantha Obeysekera, Director of Florida International University’s Sea Level Solutions Center to discuss their findings when it comes to these issues and solutions.
