Abstract

World dynamics appear to be in a perpetual state of crisis, in and out. There exists an increasing risk of a catastrophic war at an international level with each passing day, amongst these tensions, the most defining threat of the century is climate change. The drastic variations in the climatic conditions have the potential to affect the geopolitical situation of the world. Climate change is real and its effects will not only test the international system but also trigger social and economic upheaval. Threats at the global level, call for cooperation at the global level. The developments in the climatic conditions will inevitably lead to structural transformation in the domain of global politics, predominantly impacting the poorer countries. The alterations in the climatic conditions will not only lead to the creation of new crises but also largely exacerbate the pre-existing ones. In light of these unpropitious circumstances, state responses to climatic phenomena are more of a determining factor than the effects themselves. It is well established that resources are scarce and as a result, debates between countries will intensify due to the ever-increasing climate fears; humankind has proven itself to be highly adaptable, but the combined effects of climatic conditions on cities, food production and water supplies pose an imminent and enormous danger to Mother Earth. It is quintessential for the human race to confront the question of climate change with a sense of achieving a common goal. This paper aims to analyse the impending doom posed by climate change, and its effects on global economy, the issue of climate refugees and international relations in the contemporary era.
