Climate change poses unprecedented threats to global security. What natural resources are most in danger from international security tensions? How can the United States minimize resource conflicts? Can international cooperation be leveraged to mitigate security risks and increase equitable access to scarce necessities?

National security expert and interdisciplinary research scientist Swathi Veeravalli will address how complex crises are prompting more multidisciplinary cooperation across disparate government agencies and between national governments.
