This chapter begins with an exploration of how climate change might impact on the waging of armed conflict, including potential effects on both the military fighting it and the civilians caught up in it. The following sections look for gaps in the current laws applicable during armed conflict, including aspects of targeting, civilian protections and weather manipulation. The final section looks to the future and the question of how any necessary changes in this area of law might be brought about.
