Center for Strategic Communication

This week ASP’s Senior Fellow for Energy and Climate, Andrew Holland, spoke with General Muniruzzaman, the President of the Bangladesh Institute for Peace and Security Studies about the impacts of climate change on security in the South Asia region. They discussed the recent heavy floods in India’s Uttarakhand Province,  and that this disaster should more precisely be called a Glacial Lake Outburst Flood (GLOF). Changes in precipitation, water usage, and the regional environment – all of which are impacted by global climate change – have real impacts on the national security of countries in the region.





Major General Muniruzzaman (Ret.), a former Senior Officer of the Bangladesh Army and President of the Bangladesh Institute of Peace and Security Studies (BIPSS). BIPSS is a non-party, non-profit think-tank focused on peace and security in South Asia.
