Research Needs for Advancing Science on National and Human Security Implications of Climate Change

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.
