Climate change is one of the most pervasive global threats to peace and security in the 21st century. It touches all areas of security, peacebuilding and development. The impacts of climate change are already adversely affecting vulnerable communities, and stretching the capacities of societies and governments to cope. The Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) affirms that these impacts on human security, peace and well-being will worsen, especially for the world’s poorest, many of whom live in fragile states.1
