Climate and Security

The Social Science Research Council is an independent international non-profit research organization almost a century old. SSRC is committed to fostering innovation, investing in the future, working internationally and democratically, combing urgency and patience, and keeping standards high. SSRC also publishes valuable surveys, one of which covers the field of climate and security.

The climate and security literature review was generated by the SSRC’s Academic Network on Peace, Security and the United Nations, which is a product of the SSRC’s Conflict Prevention and Peace Forum and its Understanding Violent Conflict program. The network was SSRC’s response to an appeal from the United Nations Secretariat for a review of literature that can help guide UN researchers.
