The Geospatial Research Unit at START seeks to investigate the ways climate-related security challenges may exacerbate existing societal tensions, disrupt geopolitical relationships, and create new threats to national and international security and human security in places experiencing vulnerability to climatic changes. The overall goal of this new climate security research agenda aims to explore how diverse geographic and geospatial knowledge and methods can be applied to study, analyze, and draw attention to the intersections of climate change and security.
