Climate-fragility risks in Japan and the Asia-Pacific region

Climate-fragility risks are a major security challenge for Japan and the Asia-Pacific region. Japan can build on important lessons learned from other G7 countries such as Germany and the USA as well as its own experiences and significant strengths in fields such as Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) to address these risks. Possible ways forward are conducting a systematic risk assessment and identifying and further exploring relevant policies to address climate-fragility risks, for example by assessing Japan’s development and foreign policy portfolio. In addition, long-term resilience partnerships between the G7 and countries experiencing fragility or conflict could be established.
