Busby Participates in Stanley Foundation Discussion

On June 29, 2015, Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar and LBJ School Professor Josh Busby participated in the Stanley Foundation’s discussion, “Climate Change and Security: Examining the Role of Security Concerns in Climate Change Governance”, in New York City. The discussion preceded a UN Security Council open Arria-formula meeting on June 30, 2015 regarding the role of climate change as a threat multiplier for global security.

The purpose of the talk was to explore how increased attention to the security implications of climate change are now playing in an important role in climate change governance. Other participants included representatives from the Kiribati Climate Action Network, the Indigenous Peoples of Africa Coordinating Committee, and the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia Law School.
