Carol Dumaine served for over thirty years as an intelligence analyst and manager in the Central Intelligence Agency with an emphasis in the latter half of her career on strategic and emerging global security issues, including climate change. A recognized innovator and foresight practitioner, Dumaine’s areas of expertise include global and national security affairs, climate change, intelligence analysis, and multiple scenario analysis. Dumaine also headed up the Energy and Environmental Security Directorate in the US Department of Energy’s Office of Intelligence and Counterintelligence from 2007-2010. While in government service, Dumaine led the Global Futures Partnership, which engaged with external non-government expertise to improve foresight on unclassified transnational security issues. In 2007, the US Partnership for Public Service recognized Dumaine as a Finalist for the Service-to-America National Security Medal for her leadership in creating the Global Futures Forum with over thirty other nations in an international collaborative effort to enhance collective foresight and shared awareness for dealing effectively with transnational challenges. Following her retirement from government service, Dumaine co-taught a graduate-level seminar on Climate Change and National and Global Security at The Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS). Dumaine has frequently served as a moderator and speaker on issues related to climate security, global risks, and early warning. Dumaine’s focus today is on how the COVID-19 crisis spotlights inequities around the world as well as imperatives for enhanced international foresight and cooperation to deal with such global challenges, including climate change. Dumaine is a graduate of Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service and holds a Master’s in International Public Policy from John Hopkins University’s SAIS.
