Evidence-based coordination of national climate resilience: briefing report

Cassandra Star, Peter Tangney, Beverley Clarke, Joshua Newman, Claire Nettle

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportpeer-review


Climate change presents a key threat to Australia’s national security over the coming decades. Increasing hazards from extreme climate, such as drought, flood, extreme heat and more intense storms, act as risk multipliers for already -vulnerable communities and governments in the Indo-Pacific region. These pressures expose governments’ poor adaptive capacity, can lead to declining government legitimacy and can inflame tensions across communities and between states. These cascading pressures make climate security a key concern for the Australian Government Department of Defence and its partners
domestically and internationally.
