  • In regard to climate change and its impacts, environmentalists consider South Asia as one of the relatively higher-level risk regions in the world – though there is no agreement among them whether there exists any correlation between climate change and conflict.

    Making use of their five-year-long research, involving study of massive media and scientific reports from all the eight nations of South Asia (including Afghanistan), the authors here convincingly show how climate stress has become a powerful catalyst for social tensions and human insecurity. It is, suggest the authors, thus imperative for South Asian nations to work together in the framework environmental security to deal with the challenges stemming from climate change. They also set out an agenda of environmental security to deal with the causes and consequences of climate change.
