MRS No. 70 – Exploring the climate change–conflict–mobility nexus
Authored by Sarah Zingg, this Migration Research Series paper aims to improve the understanding of the interlinkages between climate change and conflict by providing a synthesis analysis of research on the topic. It more particularly explores four main factors identified as mechanisms through which climate change affects violent conflict, including increased migration and changing pastoral mobility patterns. The paper then provides some conclusions drawing from the findings of existing research, as well as policy and programmatic implications for peacebuilding, community stabilization and disaster risk reduction interventions.
