The security challenges posed by climate change are multifaceted and simultaneously affect human, community and state security. Climate change also results in short-, medium- and long-term impacts, which makes the adopted time perspective key. In addition, the impacts of climate change on for instance food or water security are closely dependent on socio-economic conditions, which means that the same impact might have diverse consequences depending on the context. Hence, climate change creates additional pressures on current vulnerabilities for people and societies across the world, with particularly adverse effects in already fragile contexts.
