Human and national security issues centre around livelihood threats and finding an inclusive approach that takes into consideration the local dynamics is important in addressing climate related security risks. Of the ten countries hosting the largest peace operation staff globally, eight of them are in areas exposed to climate change, which makes the question on the impact of climate change on the peace building process important.
