The University of Arizona: Department of Defense Research Discussion

Home to 7 military installations, Arizona is a critical nexus for U.S. national security.

Arizona is also increasingly susceptible to the effects of climate change. As noted in a recent publication released by the University of Arizona, the Department of Defense is inclined to prioritize the near-term threats over the long-term, looming threats like climate change.

On November 16, the American Security Project and University of Arizona will convene a panel of experts to discuss the recently published research led by University of Arizona faculty on the effects of climate change at Department of Defense installations, including Fort Huachuca and the Barry Goldwater Ranges. The paper focuses on both the barriers and the opportunities for climate adaptation within DoD.

The event will highlight the nexus between climate resilience and national security in Arizona and why climate action in Southern Arizona is imperative for American national security. The panel discussion will feature report authors Dr. Gregg Garfin and Prof. Katharine Jacobs, Lt Gen Norm Seip, USAF, (Ret.). , and Rear Admiral David Titley, USN (Ret.).

This panel will be held via zoom, and registration is required.
