But how severe are the security risks and conflict potentials of climate change? Could global warming trigger a sequence of events leading to economic decline, social unrest and political instability? What are the causal relationships between resource scarcity and violent conflict?

Furthermore, the authors discuss strategies, institutions and cooperative approaches to stabilize the climate-society interaction." ;
