Climate change, in both scale and potential impact, is a security risk that will affect our most basic resources, from food to water to energy. Preparing for climate risks requires a much better understanding of the nature of the threat. The Climate Security 101 project aims to answer the most frequently asked questions regarding the nature of climate risks to security, as well as act as a clearinghouse for the latest climate security research and policy documents.
