This Defence Assessment explores the links between climate change and security, and how climate change will be a driver for future Defence Force operations, particularly in New Zealand's neighbourhood. It identifies actions Defence can take as part of a broader New Zealand Government work programme on climate change and sustainability, and underscores the importance of continuing to work with and learn from our Pacific partners in understanding and responding to the intensifying impacts of climate change.

The assessment has been produced by the Ministry of Defence in close consultation with the New Zealand Defence Force, and draws on input from other government departments, foreign partners, as well as academics working on climate change issues.
