Center for American progress takes on climate change, migration, and why they matter to US national security

Source(s):  Woodrow Wilson Center's Environmental Change and Security Program (ECSP)

Climate change is linked to migration and conflicts in the new Center for American Progress report, writes New Security Beat.

Investing in adaptation to climate change, investigating capacities of vulnerable communities, building infrastructure, the importance of education within climate change adaptation, clean water, migration and and broadening the concept of climate change adaptation, are some of the elements of climate change that Jon Barnett from the University of Melbourne emphasizes in the following interview.

The article goes on to state based on the report: "Ultimately, what we consider adaptation and development needs to evolve. By investing in an integrated, multi-sector development approach, we can prevent violent responses to migration at the source rather than relying on reactionary and military solutions."
