Climate-Fragility Risk Brief: South Asia

This risk brief charts out the ways in which the security implications of climate change manifest themselves in the region. At present, there are no dedicated frameworks that directly address climate-fragility risks or the security implications of climate change in South Asia. In light of this, this risk brief also suggests a number of entry points for addressing these risks, which go beyond the overarching necessity to create more evidence-based and actionable knowledge on the region’s climate security. For a quick overview of South Asia's climate-fragility risks, take a look at the two-pager factsheet.
