This will be the last post on the blog. As of February 1, I am no longer working at the IISS. I can say with confidence that the dialogue was successful in bringing together a diverse group of experts to discuss how climate change will affect a broad range of security threats. We held workshops on water, food, and energy security. We held larger conferences to bring the debate outside the experts, in both Washington and Brussels.
We delivered our report (PDF) to the European Commission at the end of January. With the completion of the report, my time at the IISS has come to an end, and I have moved on. If you are looking for updates on me, take a jump over to my personal website at www.andrew-holland.com. I will also continue my blogging at www.revolutionarytransitions.blogspot.com. I will continue to look at how climate change affects security, but I will also write about the broader changes that the earth and human society are undergoing. I hope that you will update your RSS feeds and your bookmarks.
Finally, if you are looking for the most up-to-date analysis of global affairs from the IISS, I would direct you to the IISS voices blog, which should be your first stop for any global security issue.
Thanks go out to all who participated in our events; it would not have been a success without you. Thanks also to everyone who followed this blog from its inception to its closure. I really believe that blogging is the best way to reach a large and connected audience around the world. Thank you.
