Scientific understanding of the national and human security implications of climate change are considerably less well understood than many of the other impacts of climate change. As a result, there are a wide variety of research needs for improving understanding of the relationship between climate change and security, including the following:
• Develop improved observations, models, and vulnerability assessments for regions of importance in terms of military infrastructure.
• Build understanding of observations and monitoring requirements for treaty verification.
• Identify areas of potential human insecurity and vulnerability in response to climate change impacts interacting with other social and environmental changes.
