An Uncertain Future: Law Enforcement, National Security and Climate Change

Climate change will have serious environmental, socio-economic and security consequences for both developed and developing nations alike. This report explores these consequences and demonstrates that they will present new challenges to governments trying to maintain domestic stability. Those agencies tasked with protecting and sustaining national security will need to adapt to better cope with a changing global environment. However, as this report shows, if governments simply respond with traditional attempts to maintain the status quo and control insecurity they will ultimately fail.
