Free, In-Person DOD Workshop Will Focus on National Security Impact of Climate Change at Installations

April 18, 2023

A free DOD workshop in St. Louis in July “will provide a forum for DOD stakeholders and partners to explore the many facets of climate change, a national security threat that has tangible impacts to military readiness,” according to the event website. “Workshop attendees will share lessons learned on built and natural infrastructure solutions and set the course for new and improved partnerships to connect missions, resources and communities in support of military installation resilience.”

The event is hosted by the office of Assistant Secretary of Defense for Energy, Installations and Environment Brendan Owens.

The agenda shows four days of sessions about resilience, the “one community” approach to addressing shared concerns across the fence line, and helpful programs such as DOD’s Readiness and Environment Protection Initiative.
