United states department homeland security - wikipedia, The united states department of homeland security (dhs) is a cabinet department of the united states federal government, created in response to the september 11. On Friday, the New Security Beat posted a great blog and podcast featuring comments by Alice Hill, the senior director for resilience policy at the U.S. This may be news to some who are used to seeing DHS reports on terrorism and other more traditional domestic security issues, but the department’s focus on preparing for climate risks is years in the making (see, for example, all climate-related Homeland Security documents here on our Climate Security Resource Hub). The Quadrennial Homeland Security Review (QHSR) was released by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on June 18, and it takes a hard look at the security risks of a changing climate.

While the hearing did include the usual political cleavages and posturing, it provided a useful opportunity to discuss the risk management approach of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), including as it relates to climate change. Department of Homeland Security, or DHS, is leading efforts to build resilience to the risks of climate change in the United States.
Perhaps lost in the chatter was that the hearing marked an important step towards better assessing where we are both as a nation, and within various departments and agencies across the U.S. Indeed, there seemed to be broad agreement among all witnesses that climate change poses very real security risks to the U.S.
