Climate-Fragility Risk Brief: North Africa and Sahel

The risk brief provides a balanced presentation of the current state of knowledge and thus contributes to the ongoing debate on climate and security. The author, Oli Brown, analyses the most important climate fragility risks in the region, including resource conflicts, climate-induced migration, conflicts over water distribution, and terrorist groups. For a quick overview of North Africa and Sahel's climate-fragility risks, take a look at the two-pager factsheet (the risk brief is also available in French).
