Energy Security and Resilient Trade

Program presented by:

WAC Greater Houston.png

For over 70 years, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization has been the most vital military and strategic alliance of the United States. Over the decades, NATO member states have united: to rebuild and stabilize Europe after WW II; to maintain a unified front during the Cold War; and to fight together for peace in the Balkans and Afghanistan. NATO is a crucial defense pact, but also a driving force to preserve and promote democracy and open societies.

The hazards facing NATO members now maybe the most complicated and varied in its history. The forward-looking ‘NATO 2030 Agenda’ reflects the need and the flexibility to adapt and prepare for evolving threats. NATO’s agenda addresses the many risks of today and the challenges of tomorrow, including: Russia’s aggressive actions; the need for energy security and the impacts of climate change; the threat of terrorism and cyber attacks; emerging and disruptive technologies; and the rise of China. 

In June, President Biden will join NATO’s Summit of Allied Leaders in Brussels. It will be Biden’s first encounter with the combined Allied leadership since taking office, and an important opportunity for Europeans and North Americans to join together once again to confront the many pressing matters of today. 

In advance of the summit, the Council is honored to host two key members of NATO’s leadership: Assistant Secretary General for Intelligence & Security David Cattler, and Ambassador Spiros Lambridis, Permanent Representative of Greece on the North Atlantic Council. They will address the evolution and importance of the alliance and, in particular, the need for NATO members to work together to maintain energy security, strong supply chains and resilient trade practices in the years to come.

The world is changing. NATO, the transatlantic alliance, is continuing to adapt to keep Americans and Europeans safe in this decade and beyond. The NATO 2030 initiative is about making sure our Alliance remains ready today to face tomorrow's challenges. The next Summit of Allied leaders will take place on 14 June 2021 at NATO HQ in Brussels, Belgium. This will be President Biden’s first encounter with Allies at the highest level. NATO leaders will take decisions on the substantive and forward-looking NATO 2030 agenda to deal with the challenges of today and tomorrow: Russia’s aggressive actions, the threat of terrorism, cyber attacks, emerging and disruptive technologies, the security impact of climate change, and the rise of China. Earlier this year, Allies agreed a Strategy on Emerging and Disruptive Technologies, prioritizing efforts within the Alliance and setting out a clear framework for the engagement with Allied innovation ecosystems. In coming months, Allies will agree on NATO’s AI Strategy and principles of responsible use in the defense environment, reflecting Allied values.

 

A few weeks before the Summit, two NATO representatives are coming to San Francisco – virtually – to listen to America’s West-Coast and engage with you about emerging and disruptive technologies, and about cyber security.

This is the last stop in a cross-country tour of high-level NATO officials and ambassadors from Allied countries with six World Affairs Councils to discuss critical topics. The World Affairs Councils of America presents: NATO 2030: Strengthening the Alliance to Address New Security Threats.
