NATO's secretary-general says the alliance should do more to prepare for the challenges of climate change.

Anders Fogh Rasmussen says in a prepared speech that rising sea levels, drought and competition for land and resources all have implications for security.

He says military forces are the biggest owners of vehicles in their countries and could do more to promote fuel efficiency.

Rasmussen says "we should start simply by bringing the security aspects of climate change to the NATO table for discussion, to get a shared view of what the challenge is, and what the best ways forward might be."

Rasmussen plans to deliver the speech Thursday at the Lloyds of London insurance market.
