ISBN / Resource ID: 

This report combines the conclusions of several scientific studies and the opinions of numerous researchers and specialized organizations that have focused these past few years on the link between climate and security. It highlights the essential contributions of a collective group of experts in order to concentrate on this issue and encourage institutions such as foreign and defense ministries to adopt new approaches.

The report presents several solutions, some of which can be set in motion immediately. For example, systematically adding experts on environmental issues to the crisis management departments of diplomatic missions and defense ministries, and stress testing in terms of conflict a world with a 1.5°C-, 2°C-, 3°C-, or 4°C-increase in temperature, in order to better anticipate and prevent those potential conflicts.
