Our Mission

Climate and Security at NPS


Our Mission 2

DOD is taking action to address the security implications of climate change, both due to its effect on military infrastructure, readiness and operations, and its broader geostrategic implications for the US.

NPS is answering DoD’s need for research and analysis on climate and security topics from oceanography and meteorology to energy and security affairs.

The NPS Climate and Security Network brings these experts together to answer research needs from DOD and offer NPS students a more thorough understanding and set of skills related to these issues.
