ABSTRACT
Researches have represented that human attempts were not enough to decrease the effects of climate changes despite climate changes approval convention and Kyoto protocol and undoubtedly the world will face unexplainable changes and events in near future due to climate changes. The events have been started in recent decades and been tensed quickly such as refugee of the people whose habitants were destroyed. They not only don't enjoy living facilities and human rights, but also they engage in general legal problems like identity, nationality, job and housing. They are sometimes called as Environmental emigrants. Lack of food, job and asset security in one hand and the risk of breaking out epidemic diseases in the other hand cause threatening the national and international security. Environmental contentions are increasing due to different causes such as natural sources deficiency and compulsive immigration of most of refugees. Of other climate changes effects there are new opportunities and assets are created for some countries like polar canals, natural sources and fertile lands are created by melting ice and snow. The ownership of some of these assets is challenging. These events are tensing and becoming the biggest security threats in a century. Today, security is the most important and obvious example of fundamental human rights. In circumstances that most of peoples' lives are exposed to threats and insecurity like wars, floods, tsunamis, and food and water shortages, these people cannot benefit from their rights; and if observing human rights is necessary, security rights of affected people should be guaranteed. There is a determined relation between security and living rights on one side, and freedom rights in the other. In addition to the impacts of climate change on peoples' lives in different ways such as losing agricultural lands, it disrupts security in some parts of the world by creating conflict and contention and prevents realization of human rights and support of individual security. Defining climate change as a threat against international security suggests that security committee should engage seriously in establishing international peace and security due to its considerable role based on seventh chapter of United Nation Organization Charter. This research attempts to explain the impacts of climate change on economic, social, environmental, and human security that as a new in security arena, and to define international organizations' roles in creating global peace.
