Promoting the Dialogue: Climate Change and the Quadrennial Defense Review
The Center for a New American Security (CNAS), an RBF grantee, has released a working paper, Promoting the Dialogue: Climate Change and the Quadrennial Defense Review. The authors, CNAS Bacevich Fellow Christine Parthemore and Research Assistant Will Rogers, examine how the Department of Defense is incorporating climate change and its impact on national security into the Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR).
The working paper is the first in a series of reports that will "analyze and offer recommendations on climate change implications for each of the Combatant Commands, maritime, ground and air missions."
