The current European migrant crisis, coupled with claims that the Syrian civil war is partly a result of a devastating drought, has accentuated fears that climate change will bring about more instability and conflict in the future.

This talk outlines the scientific state of the art and reflects on some promises and pitfalls as we continue the debate on security implications of climate change.
