Author(s): Jean-Francois Maystadt, Valerie Mueller, Ashwini Sebastian

Countries: Nepal

Topics: Climate Change, Livelihoods

Added: 24/09/2014

 

While an emerging literature cites weather shocks as major determinants of migration, scant evidence exists on how such migration impacts the labor markets of receiving communities in developing countries. We address this knowledge gap by investigating the impact of weather-driven internal migration on labor markets in a post-conflict country, Nepal,...

Climate Change, Conflict, and Cooperation: Global Analysis of the Resilience of International River Treaties to Increased Water Variability

Climate Change, Conflict, and Cooperation: Global Analysis of the Resilience of International River Treaties to Increased Water Variability

Source: The World Bank Development Research Group, 2014

Author(s): Shlomi Dinar, David Katz, Lucia De Stefano, Brian Blankespoor

Topics: Climate Change, Cooperation, Renewable Resources

Added: 24/09/2014

 

Although water variability has already been observed across river basins, climate change is predicted to increase variability. Such environmental changes may aggravate political tensions, especially in regions that are not equipped with an appropriate institutional apparatus. Increased variability is also likely to challenge regions with existing institutional capacity. This paper...

Follow the Water: Emerging Issues of Climate Change and Conflict in Peru

Follow the Water: Emerging Issues of Climate Change and Conflict in Peru

Source: United States Agency for International Development (USAID), 2012

Author(s): Jeffrey Stark, Sergio Guillén, and Cynthia Brady

Countries: Peru

Topics: Climate Change

Added: 10/09/2014

 

This study explores how the effects of climate change on water quantity, quality, and access may be factoring into aspects of localized instability, fragility, and conflict in Peru. To help guide the methodological approach, FESS developed a seven-phase framework—the Climate Change and Conflict Assessment Framework (CCCAF). The framework emphasizes one of the main...

Climate Change, Adaptation, and Conflict: A Preliminary Review of the Issues

Climate Change, Adaptation, and Conflict: A Preliminary Review of the Issues

Source: United States Agency for International Development (USAID), 2009

Author(s): Jeffrey Stark, Christine Mataya, and Kelley Lubovich

Topics: Climate Change

Added: 10/09/2014

 

Climate change may threaten livelihoods, food security, water security, and marine resources in ways that are interrelated. Changes in precipitation patterns resulting in droughts or floods have the potential to reduce or even decimate agricultural production. The globalized nature of food production and consumption means that severe weather events could limit food production...

Added: 07/09/2014

 

The Pentagon has called climate change a “threat multiplier,” a “stressor” that can take a volatile political situation and push it over the edge. In "Climate Wars - Years of Living Dangerously," New York Times correspondent Thomas L. Friedman witnesses this effect in three Middle Eastern countries: Egypt, Syria, and Yemen.

There are diverse linkages between climate change and security including risks of conflict, national security concerns, critical national infrastructure, geo-political rivalries and threats to human security. We review analysis of these domains from primary research and from policy prescriptive and advocacy sources. We conclude that much analysis over-emphasises deterministic mechanisms...
