Do hydro-climatic hazards intensify social tensions and conflicts?

Do hydro-climatic hazards intensify social tensions and conflicts?

15 June 2010

In recent years, it has almost become conventional wisdom that climate change is a threat to human security. Both politicians and scientists have called climate change a conflict trigger or multiplier. However, empirically-based research on the relationship between climate change, resource scarcity and conflict is often absent. At the workshop on "Climate-induced migration in the MENA", Maria Berglund presented the FP7 project "Climate change, Hydro-conflicts and Human Security (CLICO)", aiming to address these research gaps.

Maria Berglund introduced the workshop participants to the recently started CLICO project by outlining its main goals and research activities, focussing on the policy mapping work that will be done by Ecologic Institute.
