In this issue, we are pleased to introduce the Belfer Center’s Technology and Public Purpose (TAPP) Project. The brainchild of Belfer Center Director Ash Carter, the goal of the project is to ensure that emerging technologies are developed and managed in ways that serve humanity as a whole. We also feature the latest effort by our Defending Digital Democracy Project: observing midterm elections in five states and meeting with election officials to further fortify their elections against malicious attacks.Since its launch 18 months ago, D3P has engaged 44 of 50 states to improve their readiness, resistance, and resilience.
We also highlight Belfer Center work on climate change impacts - from student presentations at the Arctic Circle Assembly and presentation of the Roy Award for a partnership working to prevent flooding to decarbonization efforts in China. And there's much more.
