Topics: Climate Change, Conflict Causes, Land, Livelihoods

Added: 01/02/2017

 

To date, the research community has failed to reach a consensus on the nature and significance of the relationship between climate variability and armed conflict. We argue that progress has been hampered by insufficient attention paid to the context in which droughts and other climatic extremes may increase the risk...

Climate change is expected to lead to increasing competition for and conflict over natural resources, particularly water and land. The ability of communities to resolve these conflicts is therefore an adaptive capacity.  Kebakabiya in North Darfur is one of the region’s most important agricultural areas, traversed by one of the longest...

Accessing and Using Climate Data and Information in Fragile Data-Poor States

Accessing and Using Climate Data and Information in Fragile Data-Poor States

Source: International Institute for Sustainable Development, 2015

Author(s): Simon Mason, Andrew Kruczkiewicz, Pietro Ceccato, and Alec Crawford

Topics: Assessment, Climate Change, Conflict Causes, Programming

Added: 01/02/2017

 

The vulnerability of populations in fragile states to weather and climate variability is typically much higher than in other countries. These countries, and their populations, face a higher exposure to climate change as a result of their geography. They are also over-reliant on climate-dependent sectors of the economy, particularly rain-fed...

Climate change poses numerous challenges for international river basins that are likely to intensify in the decades to come. These challenges will have significant socio-economic and political repercussions. Ensuring sustainable development and political stability in these basins, therefore requires effective adaptation to the impacts of climate change. To overcome existing...

IPCC Reasons for Concern Regarding Climate Change Risks

IPCC Reasons for Concern Regarding Climate Change Risks

Added: 20/01/2017

 

The reasons for concern framework communicates scientific understanding about risks in relation to varying levels of climate change. The framework, now a cornerstone of the IPCC assessments, aggregates global risks into five categories as a function of global mean temperature change. We review the framework's conceptual basis and the risk...

The potential links between climate change and conflict have received much attention in recent years, but there is little consensus on the issue in the relevant literature. So far, few methodological reflections exist in climate–conflict research. This is unfortunate given the tremendous innovations in methods the research field has experienced...

This study explores the conceptual and empirical utility of studying school textbooks from a critical geopolitics perspective. School textbooks bind together various discourses, modalities and genres and can reflect the dominant knowledge in a given society. They therefore have a high potential to reveal the citational practices resonating between the...
