2012 NCSE Conference: Environment and Security



   

The National Council for Science and the Environment (NCSE) presented its 12th National Conference on Science, Policy and the Environment: Environment and Security, January 18-20, 2012 in Washington, DC.  

The Environment and Security Conference provided a forum to explore the connections between environment and security issues, their common underlying scientific threads, and the policy and governance needed to address security risks posed by a rapidly changing environment.

The conference brought together over 1,000 attendees from the scientific, business, academic and environmental communities, as well as international, federal, and regional government officials

NCSE utilizes a multi-disciplinary and multi-sectoral approach to covene involved scientists and decision-makers from various sectors of society.  Our conferences include renowned speakers, topical symposia to explore issues more in depth, and breakout workshops to develop a set of recommendations on how to advance science and connect it to policy and decision-making.
