Climate change is increasingly been called a ‘security’ problem, and there has been speculation that climate change may increase the risk of violent conflict. In this paper, the impact of climate change on the indicators such as war and insecurity, water and food resources, poverty development, migration, political and health borders and the spread of diseases that threatens human security, have been investigated. The result is that climate change is a global concern and requires global cooperation and accountability, especially in helping developing countries to adapt to its harmful effects. On a national level, all governments should establish a sustainable development ministry dedicated to managing the relationship between environmental change and human beings. On a global level, governments must ultimately realize that the treaties signed by all of them in the recent years on climate, environment and multi-state affairs are at least as much as the issue of global security and the size of all war zones and points.
