The report is written from the vantage point of international military and security experts, providing a global overview of the security risks of a changing climate, and opportunities for addressing them. It recommends “climate-proofing” international security – including infrastructure, institutions and policies, as well as major emissions reductions to avoid significant-to-catastrophic security threats. It is the first report of its kind.
While there has been progress over the past decades, with militaries and security institutions increasingly analysing and incorporating climate change risks into their assessments, plans and policies, the report shows that the risks are increasingly urgent, and more must be done.
