About the Center for Climate and Security

The Center for Climate and Security (CCS) is a non-partisan policy institute with a team and distinguished Advisory Board of security and military experts, and the only institution exclusively focused on the intersection of climate and security. CCS envisions a climate-resilient world which recognizes that climate change threats to security are significant and unprecedented, and acts to address those threats in a manner that is commensurate to their scale, consequence and probability. To further this goal, CCS facilitates policy development processes and dialogues, provides analysis, conducts research, communicates to the public, and acts as a resource hub in the climate and security field.
