Who are we ?




Climate change poses complex and interconnected challenges to domestic and international peace and security, as well as to human well-being and global justice. Producing and sharing knowledge in the field of climate security studies has never been more crucial. In 2022, a group of Canadian scholars working on climate security issues came together to establish the Climate Security Association of Canada (CSAC). The goal of CSAC is to ensure that collaborative responses to climate change and insecurity are based on solid evidence and promote communication and exchange of research findings across policy, practice, and academic disciplines.


CSAC's purpose is to bring together, coordinate, and enhance the capacities of scholars, policymakers, practitioners, media professionals, and others with a professional interest in generating, disseminating, and applying knowledge related to climate change and security. We aim to foster independent and responsible scholarly inquiry among our members and contribute to informed and guided climate security policy-making. CSAC also strives to improve the teaching and dissemination of ideas, concepts, methods, and information about climate security. To fulfill these objectives, the Association actively seeks cooperative relationships with relevant organizations and supports graduate students through meetings and scholarship opportunities.


CSAC was officially launched on March 14, 2023, in Montreal. It was founded by its first President, Professor Bruno Charbonneau (Royal Military College Saint-Jean), along with Professor Gabrielle Daoust (University of Northern British Columbia), Dr. Tom Deligiannis (Wilfrid Laurier University), and Professor Wilfrid Greaves (University of Victoria).
