Climate and security: evidence, emerging risks and a new agenda
For the first time, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will focus on human security in its assessment report to be published in 2014. On the occasion of this conference, Iddri, in collaboration with the University of Exeter and the Wilson Center, brought together researchers and specialist practitioners in security issues to take stock of these emerging risks. The conference addressed the following questions: How will climate change transform major security issues? What will be the impacts on civil and military conflicts, on food security or energy? What will be the new challenges ahead for humanitarian organizations and military forces?
Lilianne Fan and Katie Harris gave a presentation on Climate Change as a Driver of Humanitarian Crises and Response at the conference.
