  • Security implications of a worst-case scenario of climate change in the South-west Pacific
  • This paper examines the links between climate change and security in the island states of the South-west Pacific. A worst-case scenario of climate change is presented which suggests that land will be lost or rendered uninhabitable in all Pacific
