Climate change presents a serious threat to the security and prosperity of the United States and other countries. Joshua W. Busby. Associate Professor of Public Affairs, University of Texas-Austin. Yet, while solar geoengineering might potentially be utilised to manage some climate-linked security threats, it itself would create new security challenges. Consequently, this paper explores potential international security implications for Australia if a regional state, or group of states, initiates a solar geoengineering : Adam Lockyer, Jonathan Symons.
In , the CIA was ordered to carry out the first ever US National Intelligence Assessment (NIA) on the national security implications of climate change. The findings from the assessment predicted that over the next twenty years, global climate change will affect a wide range of security interests. Climate change is any significant long-term change in the expected patterns of average weather of a region (or the whole Earth) over a significant period of time. It is about abnormal variations to the climate, and the effects of these variations on other parts of the earth. These changes may take tens, hundreds or perhaps millions of years.
The Age of Consequences. The Foreign Policy and National Security Implications of Global Climate Change. November 5, In August , a Russian adventurer descended 4, meters under the thinning ice of th North Pole to plant a titanium flag, claiming some million square kilometers of the Arctic for mother Russia. Water and food security are the key challenges under climate change as both are highly vulnerable to continuously changing climatic patterns. Studies have predicted that the average global temperature may increase by – °C and there would be substantial reduction in fresh water resources and agricultural yield by the end of the 21st by:

About the Book. The IDSA Working Group on Security Implications of Climate Change for India felt that while it would be proper to oppose the securitisation of climate change, it would be prudent not to ignore its likely security dimensions.
The Working Group Report identifies India's key vulnerabilities. Security Implications of Climate Change for India. Background. Climate change and its consequences are being increasingly viewed as the foremost problem of the 21st century.
Climate change challenges at the national, regional and global level are hugely demanding and interconnected and have obvious implications in terms of human security. This identifies India's key vulnerabilities with regard to climate change.
It argues that climate change cannot be delinked from overall energy security and economic growth, and that India needs to improve energy efficiency in the industrial, household and transport sectors. India is vulnerable to climate change because of global warming and may therefore experience climate change migration, or people migrating because of climateinduced phenomena such as natural : Ingrid Boas.

By Brahma Chellaney and Heela Najibullah. The subsequent arguments analyze the impact of climate change on the risk of natural hazards in India and implications for security and propose preparedness strategies and emergent policy imperatives.
THE CONTEXT- CHANGING CLIMATE IPCC AR4 has categorically established that climate change is advancing rapidly. In a world where many traditional scarcities are overcome by technological innovation, substitution, and human ingenuity, climate change threatens to reintroduce environmental and resource issues as a major source of human insecurity.
According to former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan. Climate change poses significant security risks and grave challenges to the Asia-Pacific region, including: decreasing energy access, decreasing access to food, increased frequency and intensity of hydro meteorological disasters, population displacement, increased public health problems.
The purpose of this chapter is to put the issue of global. climate change into perspective, define terms, and introduce. the reader to major debates and areas of uncertainty. Spencer Weart shows how global warming has come, over time, to be framed as a national security Size: 1MB.
Climate change is expected to have major health impacts in India- increasing malnutrition and related health disorders such as child stunting - with the poor likely to be affected most severely.
Child stunting is projected to increase by 35% by compared to a scenario without climate change. Malaria and other vector-borne diseases, along. By Dr. Marc Kodack As a complement to the Center for Climate and Security’s recent post on the Intelligence Community’s warnings about pandemics, and climate change, in its’ Worldwide Threat Assessment, it’s worth re-visiting the World Meteorological Organization’s report summarizing the state of the global climate in (the report; a summary).

Series Title: Asian political, economic and security. Australian officials have paid increasing attention to the links between climate change and security.
The Defence White Paper and the Foreign Policy White Paper both clearly set out a view that climate change will contribute to insecurity in the Asia-Pacific region, and specifically for Australian interests. The Foreign Policy White Paper provides a detailed and comprehensive Author: Kumuda Simpson.
A report summarized six possible ways in which climate change would impact national security: threats to the stability of countries, heightened social and political tensions, adverse effects on food prices and availability, increased risks to human health, negative impacts on investments and economic competitiveness, and potential climate.
Asia Climate change - India battles to balance economy and environment. India is at the top of the list of nations expected to be worst hit by the adverse effects of climate change. four environmental dimensions of energy security—climate change, air pollution, water availability and quality, and land-use change—and the environmental impact of 13 energy systems on each are discussed in this by: 8.
This chapter assesses the implications of climate change on economic activity in key economic sectors and services, on economic welfare, and on economic development.
For most economic sectors, the impact of climate change will be small relative to the impacts. Climate security refers to the security risks induced, directly or indirectly, by changes in the natural climate.
There is high agreement that climate change intimidates security where the term ‘security’ can refer to a broad range of securities involving national, international and Human Security. Human Security is the most fragile as it can be compromised in order to protect national or international security.

The report stated, "Climate change and energy are two key issues that will play a significant role in shaping the future security environment," noting that "climate change, energy security, and economic stability are inextricably linked.".
