The International Military Council on Climate and Security (IMCCS) is a group of senior military leaders, security experts, and security institutions across the globe dedicated to anticipating, analyzing, and addressing the security risks of a changing climate. The creation of the IMCCS was announced at The Hague, Netherlands, on February 19, 2019 in response to a growing demand from military professionals for sharing information and best practices on addressing the security and military dimensions of climate change. The IMCCS will be formally launched in the fall-winter of 2019 (date and time to be determined).
HCSS Special Strategic Advisor Tom Middendorp is the chair of the International Military Council on Climate and Security and HCSS Deputy Director Michel Rademaker is a senior member of the Executive Committee. More information about IMCCS can be found on their recently launched website.
