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 risks, terrorism and internal threats arising from a combination of ethnic, religious and political tensions.1 Environmental challenges, such as climate change, water scarcity and energy security, are also an increasingly common reality for the region.2 In 2019 for example, drought and over-extraction of groundwater caused the Indian city of Chennai (with 10 million inhabitants) to nearly run out of water, while the controversy over water resources also formed part of India–Pakistan tensions.3
