Resource in French.  Les conflits entre agriculteurs et éleveurs transhumants au Sahel sont parfois présentés comme une conséquence du changement climatique, voire une menace pour la stabilité internationale. Pourtant, l’environnement n’est qu’un facteur d’exacerbation des tensions parmi de nombreux autres, d’ordre socio-économiques et surtout politiques. Les prédictions climatiques elles-mêmes, difficilement étayées,...

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

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...
