In this age of globalization, it is clear that America’s prosperity and security depends on that of our political and economic partners. Yet, today we see mounting evidence that our partners’ stability is threatened by global environmental change. Increasing pressure on limited resources is disrupting global supply chains, causing social instability, destabilizing regional relations and expanding illegal trade. Join our guest speaker David Reed, Senior Vice President for International Policy at the World Wildlife Fund, who will discuss why environmental sustainability must become a central tenet of US foreign policy in order to protect our national security and promote global prosperity.
