Climate aware and resilient national security: Challenges for the 21st Century, 2020 Climate change has been identified as one of the most serious threats to national security.  These climate-induced risks will have severe consequences to UK national security in terms of overseas instabilities generating new threats to the internal security of the UK. To create this evidence base, a substantive research programme is required, which gets to the heart of understanding changing climate security as the outcome of complex, interconnected, dynamical systems.  

Working with the Alan Turing Institute, climate, security and decision making specialists the following landscaping document was compiled with this accompanying summary
