Added: 03/10/2017

 

Maps help us to grasp complex ideas, such as patterns of risk and vulnerability, but the stories they tell can have significant implications. “It’s very difficult to validate that what you’re capturing in the maps is representative of real-world phenomenon,” says Joshua Busby in this week’s “Backdraft” episode, describing his...

Human insecurity is a matter of both environmental and social circumstances. In recent decades concerns with environmental change and its possible impacts on human societies have been linked to policy discussions of security. Scholarly analyses of resources, environment, change, and conflict suggest that these are far from simple linkages; scarcities...

Despite it being the most studied and arguably most profound of global environmental change problems, there is relatively little research that explores climate change as a security issue. This paper systematically explores the range of possible connections between climate change and security, including national security considerations, human security concerns, military...

From Climate Change to Anarchy?: A Study of the Effects of Long-term Climate Change on the Dynamics of Violent Conflict in Kenya 2007-2008

From Climate Change to Anarchy?: A Study of the Effects of Long-term Climate Change on the Dynamics of Violent Conflict in Kenya 2007-2008

Source: Swedish Defence University, 2017

Author(s): Petter Martinsson

Countries: Kenya

Topics: Climate Change, Conflict Causes, Livelihoods, Renewable Resources

Added: 26/09/2017

 

This paper studies the effects of long-term climate change on the dynamics of violent conflict in the Kenyan crisis of 2007-2008. Climate change has been found to worsen livelihood conditions in East Africa, leading to a higher competition for resources and increased intergroup tensions. This, in turn, leads to a...

There is a wide range of environmental threats to the Human Right to Water and Sanitation (HRWS) in Central Asia: desertification, the intensive use of insecticides and fertilizers harmful to the environment, global warming, nuclear pollution risks—uranium waste dumps—or pollution coming from extractive or military industrial complexes. Most of these...

Demographic shifts and constraints on key...

Author(s): Esteve Corbera, Carol Hunsberger, and Chayan Vaddhanaphuti

Topics: Climate Change, Conflict Causes, Livelihoods

Added: 26/09/2017

 

In recent years, the focus of quantitative climate-conflict research has shifted from studying civil wars to studying different types of conflicts, particularly non-state and communal conflicts, based on the argument that these local-level conflicts are a more likely consequence of climate variability than civil war. However, the findings from previous...
