The Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) in London, GLOBE International and The Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC/CEPAL), have collaborated and produced an interim report on their ongoing dialogue with Mexican officials regarding climate change and what it means for Mexico’s security.
This project follows on from the Royal United Services Institute’s (RUSI) previous work, which took place between 2008 and 2010, assessing the implications of climate change for national security in Mexico and Central America. The final report, launched in 2010, showed how climate change is expected to have profound impacts on Mexico and Central America, reshaping resource distribution, creating new dynamics of winners and losers, and making current challenges concerning poverty and governance more difficult to respond to. It was argued that these changes are likely to reshape the physical and political terrain of Mesoamerica and could have far-reaching repercussions for national and regional security.
