Recently, respected voices in the U.S. national security community—general officers, CIA analysts, high-level Pentagon officials—have warned that global climate change threatens American security. The security implications of climate change can be parsed into three broad categories: the changing foreign policy landscape, U.S. military missions and operations, national security as a driver...

Scientific Uncertainty and Security Risks of Climate Change

Scientific Uncertainty and Security Risks of Climate Change

Source: Johns Hopkins University, 2010

Author(s): Jay Gulledge

Topics: Climate Change, Governance, Renewable Resources

Added: 01/02/2017

 

Risk perception is the key to figuring out how we are going to manage this type of risk. Climate change is very complex, nonlinear, long-term, intergenerational. It is about as difficult and uncertain a problem as you can find, and it is loaded with risk. So a risk-management framework is...

There is a growing consensus in the security community that climate change presents significant risks to the delivery of national, regional and global security goals. Through sea level rise, shortages of food and water and severe weather events, climate change will have significant impacts on all countries, which in turn...

In its most recent assessment of global climate change, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences concluded, “A strong body of scientific evidence shows that climate change is occurring, is caused largely by human activities, and poses significant risks for a broad range of human and natural systems.” Impacts and rates of change...

Civil Conflict Sensitivity to Growing-Season Drought

Civil Conflict Sensitivity to Growing-Season Drought

Source: PNAS, 2016

Author(s): Nina von Uexkull, Mihai Croicu, Hanne Fjelde, and Halvard Buhaug

Topics: Climate Change, Conflict Causes, Land, Livelihoods

Added: 01/02/2017

 

To date, the research community has failed to reach a consensus on the nature and significance of the relationship between climate variability and armed conflict. We argue that progress has been hampered by insufficient attention paid to the context in which droughts and other climatic extremes may increase the risk...

Community Based Conflict Reduction and Peacebuilding in Kebkabiya, North Darfur

Community Based Conflict Reduction and Peacebuilding in Kebkabiya, North Darfur

Source: Imperial College, 2015

Author(s): Helena Wright

Countries: Sudan

Topics: Climate Change, Conflict Prevention, Dispute Resolution/Mediation, Land, Renewable Resources

Added: 01/02/2017

 

Climate change is expected to lead to increasing competition for and conflict over natural resources, particularly water and land. The ability of communities to resolve these conflicts is therefore an adaptive capacity.  Kebakabiya in North Darfur is one of the region’s most important agricultural areas, traversed by one of the longest...

Accessing and Using Climate Data and Information in Fragile Data-Poor States

Accessing and Using Climate Data and Information in Fragile Data-Poor States

Source: International Institute for Sustainable Development, 2015

Author(s): Simon Mason, Andrew Kruczkiewicz, Pietro Ceccato, and Alec Crawford

Topics: Assessment, Climate Change, Conflict Causes, Programming

Added: 01/02/2017

 

The vulnerability of populations in fragile states to weather and climate variability is typically much higher than in other countries. These countries, and their populations, face a higher exposure to climate change as a result of their geography. They are also over-reliant on climate-dependent sectors of the economy, particularly rain-fed...

Author(s): Sabine Blumstein, Benjamin Pohl, and Dennis Tänzler

Topics: Climate Change, Dispute Resolution/Mediation, Renewable Resources

Added: 26/01/2017

 

Climate change poses numerous challenges for international river basins that are likely to intensify in the decades to come. These challenges will have significant socio-economic and political repercussions. Ensuring sustainable development and political stability in these basins, therefore requires effective adaptation to the impacts of climate change. To overcome existing...

Added: 20/01/2017

 

Over the last decade there has been an evolving debate both within the United Nations and within the scholarly literature as to whether it would be feasible, appropriate and/or advantageous for the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to consider climate change to be within its remit. Given that irreversible global...

IPCC Reasons for Concern Regarding Climate Change Risks

IPCC Reasons for Concern Regarding Climate Change Risks

Author(s): Brian C. O'Neill, Michael Oppenheimer, Rachel Warren, Stephane Hallegatte, Robert E. Kopp, Hans O. Pörtner, Robert Scholes, Joern Birkmann, Wendy Foden, Rachel Licker, Katharine J. Mach, Phillippe Marbaix, Michael D. Mastrandrea, Jeff Price, Kiyoshi Takah

Topics: Climate Change, Conflict Prevention

Added: 20/01/2017

 

The reasons for concern framework communicates scientific understanding about risks in relation to varying levels of climate change. The framework, now a cornerstone of the IPCC assessments, aggregates global risks into five categories as a function of global mean temperature change. We review the framework's conceptual basis and the risk...
