Climate Change and the Arab Spring

February 28, 2013, 10:00am ET - 11:30am ET



The Center for American Progress, the Center for Climate & Security, and the Stimson Center are delighted to release a new volume on “Climate Change and the Arab Spring.” The volume outlines the complex pressures exerted by the effects of climate change on the convulsions which swept through the Middle East in 2010 and 2011, exploring the long-term trends in precipitation, agriculture, food prices, and migration which contributed to the social instability and violence which has transformed the region, and offering solutions for progress.

Panelists Tom Friedman, Anne-Marie Slaughter, and Michael Werz will parse out these complex interactions and discuss the implications for U.S. foreign and development policy.

Join the Center for American Progress, the Center for Climate & Security, and the Stimson Center for the release of these important new volumes and what is sure to be a stimulating expert discussion.
