Abstract

Against the flurry of international summits and meetings held on the environment — most recently the UN Summit on Climate Change — the critical issue of climate change has no doubt become the top security agenda for the global community. Spurred by a number of scientific studies on the catastrophic effects of climate change and more recently by the report of the influential Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), world leaders have agreed that climate change is now a global problem.
