The security threats facing the states in South Asia—Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka—are complex and diverse. Security challenges include interstate rivalry, border disputes, nuclear weapon risks, terrorism and internal threats arising from a combination of ethnic, religious and political tensions, which are often exacerbated by oppressive state security forces. Environmental and climate-related challenges include high levels of water stress (floods and droughts) and moderate to severe food insecurity.1
