Topic guide: conflict, climate and environment

Toolkit/guidelines

Written by Katie Peters

A new Environemnt on Demand topic guide with the focus on conflict, climate and environment. There is much that can be done to ensure that climate change does not lead to increased conflict, insecurity and fragility, even in the absence of downscaled climate forecasts at the sub-national level. Addressing the root causes of vulnerability to climate change impacts – such as the lack of livelihood diversification, political marginalisation, unsustainable management of natural resources, weak or inflexible institutions and inequitable policy processes – can help ensure countries plan for uncertainty and peacefully manage a range of possible futures which climate change presents.
