Stimson Center recently launched the Natural Security Forum, an initiative out of the Partnership in Security and Development program. The event featured retired Admiral James Stavridis on the growing challenge of "Natural Security" — U.S. national and global security implications of environmental crime, including illegal fishing, logging, mining, and wildlife trafficking. To manage these evolving natural security challenges we need to expand the toolkit, resources, and stakeholders involved. Join some of today’s most influential thought-leaders and journalists to discuss how to understand and tackle these questions in the context of a new U.S. President and Congress.
