Description: "Climate change is predicted to have an overall negative impact on long-term security and conflict dynamics, acting as a threat multiplier that increases the volatility of existing causes of conflict and may generate new insecurities. There is significant evidence to suggest that the environmental degradation caused by climate change is already fuelling insecurity, in particular related to a growth in internal migration. This case study provides an insight into the potential impact of climate change on security and conflict dynamics in Bangladesh. It forms part of a series of papers exploring the relationship between violent conflict, insecurity and climate change that seek to generate further debate and action on this important topic."
