Before Covid-19 the dominate social and political problem facing the world was widely acknowledged to be climate change; the planet is heating up and humans are responding, slowly. The issue impacts on all areas of policy, but what about crime prevention and security? This has largely operated under the radar. Yet the implications are serious. What does the carbon footprint of the security sector look like? Where are the largest emissions? Do emissions vary by crime type and how? And what about the security response? What should we expect from security responses and how can the sector best contribute, and will it? What does sustainable security look like? What if anything has been the impact of Covid-19?
- How has the security sector been responding to climate change?
- What the implications of climate change and have this changed post Covid-19?
- What do sustainable forms of security look like?
