Climate Security: Global Warming and a Free and Open Indo-Pacific
Edited by the Ocean Policy Research Institute of the Sasakawa Peace Foundation / Supervised by Hide Sakaguchi
Humankind has survived and built the foundations of life and society by responding to changes in the global environment, such as global cooling and warming, and shifting patterns of wet and dry weather. This can be seen as a history of mankind’s bitter struggle against the climate. We are now facing a new threat of climate change, global warming, which is having a major impact on the survival of all living things.
Against this backdrop, OPRI-SPF has published “Climate Security: Global Warming and a Free and Open Indo-Pacific,” which focuses on the security measures that are being taken in response to climate change on our planet, appropriately called a “water globe,” with approximately 71% of its surface covered by the ocean.
The book analyzes the impact of global warming on the oceans, changes in the security environment, and new risks arising from climate change, and examines what we need to do in the Indo-Pacific region, which will be greatly affected by climate change. It also presents the importance of comprehensive climate security, a concept further evolving on Japan’s “comprehensive security” concept.
