This  multidisciplinary  volume  articulates  the  current  and  potential  public  policy  discourse  between energy security and climate change in the Asia-­Pacific  region, and the efforts taken to address global warming. This volume is unique as it analyses two important issues -­climate change and energy security -­‐  through  the  lens  of  geopolitics  at  the  intersection  of  energy  security.  It  elaborates  on  the  current  and potential  steps taken by state and non-­state  actors, as well as the policy innovations  and diplomatic efforts (bilateral and multilateral, including regional) that states are pursuing. This Brief stems from the assumption that its audience is aware of the consequences of climate change, and will therefore, only look at the issues identified. It provides a useful read and reference for a wide-­range of scholars, policy­makers, researchers and post-­graduate students.
