Double vulnerability: Humanitarian Implications of the Climate-Security Nexus
The paper "Double vulnerability: the humanitarian implications of intersecting climate and conflict risk" summarizes current knowledge and analysis of the interactions between climate and conflict to set the scene for discussions at a global series of round tables on ‘People’s experience of conflict, climate risk and resilience’ jointly convened by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre, the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) and local partners. The round tables will focus on people’s lived experience of conflict and climate risk in different parts of the world, and explore how humanitarian organizations and their partners can best support people’s efforts to survive, adapt and thrive.
Resource-focussed solutions to escalating violence in Mali
A devastating uptick in violence in Mopti has drawn fresh attention to ethnic divisions and radicalisation. However the role of natural resource pressures as a root cause of conflict and point of departure for solutions continues to be overlooked. Here we set out an ambitious case of interventions – based on extensive research from the PSI community of practice – which both development and security actors can utilise to stem the spread of violence and establish the foundations for peace.
Lessons from Cape Town for water security under climate stress
After several years of low rainfall followed by a severe drought in 2017-2018, the City of Cape Town municipal government was forced to introduce dramatic measures in order to narrowly avoid the ‘Day Zero’ scenario - almost totally depleted reserves. A new briefing from the Grantham Institute looks at how events arose and how the city managed supply and demand during the crisis, with some important observations on the implications for societal tension and conflict risks of urban water security pressure.
