The academic literature on climate change and conflict has so far mostly focused on violent armed conflict and concerns about such security implications of climate change are increasingly appearing in defense and foreign policy communities. Yet, cooperative responses to climate change impacts are arguably more prevalent than violent outcomes and deserve more academic attention. For understanding how to foster peaceful responses to climatic hazards, studies of the full spectrum of cooperation and conflict responses are needed.
