Regional Security Implications of Climate Change: A Synopsis

This paper is a synopsis of a broad range of studies that have been conducted over the past years on the regional security implications of climate change. The synopsis has been commissioned by the Directorate-General External Relations of the European Commission and funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Protection and Reactor Safety in the context of the EU Roadmap process on climate change and international security. The purpose of the synopsis is to summarise the findings of these studies in order to identify remaining knowledge gaps regarding the security implications of climate change on a regional level, which need to be filled in by additional regional scenarios and studies.

This synopsis, along with the regional profiles on Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia produced by the Council Secretariat and submitted to the Policy and Security Committee in December 2008, will serve as input documents for the above-mentioned scenarios and the EU Roadmap as a whole.
