Policy, Guns and Money: Climate change and national security, 5G and northern Australia

In this episode, ASPI visiting fellow Robert Glasser and Strategist editor Anastasia Kapetas discuss climate change and national security in the first conversation in our new series that will put climate change front and centre in the national security debate.

Next, ASPI senior analyst Tom Uren speaks with ASPI fellow Rajiv Shah about his recent report Ensuring a trusted 5G ecosystem of vendors and technology. They discuss the importance of setting international standards and the need to encourage network providers to use multiple vendors to ensure a secure 5G network.

Finally, ASPI John Coyne, head of ASPI’s the North and Australia’s Security program talks to David Burke, defence engagement officer at the Townsville City Council, about the Townsville North Queensland defence strategy, which was released earlier this year. David tells us a little about the council’s strategy and how it came about.
