Project: Climate change and (in)security

The Climate Change and (In)Security (CCI) project is a new collaborative research initiative between Reuben College and the Centre for Historical Analysis and Conflict Research (CHACR), an independent think tank for the British Army. The project is designed to stimulate informed discussion and collaboration to bring greater understanding of the destabilising effects of climate-induced scarcity and conflict.

Official Fellow Dr Tim Clack co-directs the project, which will deliver an ambitious three-year programme of publications, workshops, reports and interviews to unpack the many dimensions of climate change as an existential threat, and assess the ways in which different actors can respond.

Below, you can watch a video with Official Fellow Prof Sam Fankhauser, as he explains why climate change is a threat and what implications it has to security risks.
