Issues / Environment

U.S. foreign policy and national security policies have significant domestic and international environmental impacts, and the increasingly precarious state of the global environment presents important new challenges to U.S. national interests.
One of the major challenges faced by the international community is how to address environmental problems that, although created locally, have global consequences.
