                      Moderated by Andrew Holland Senior Fellow, American Security Project

Climate change presents challenges to political stability and security, to which the United States will have to respond. As ASP’s 2012 Climate Security Report found, “Africa is the continent most likely to suffer the worst effects of climate change due to its reliance on subsistence rain-fed agriculture, rapidly increasing population and the degradation of natural resources.” Dr. Josh Busby, an Associate Professor of Public Affairs at the LBJ School of Public Affairs, will discuss his research on climate change and political stability in Africa.

This discussion will be on the record.
