Climate and Conflict

Climate change may indirectly increase the risk of conflict by exacerbating existing social, economic and environmental factors which cause unrest. Moreover, climate change requires concerted efforts to adapt which tend to be limited in times of war and insecurity. This month's theme focuses on issues relating to climate change and armed conflict and invites submissions relating to the climate as a driver of conflict, the environment as a casualty of conflict, and the ways in which IHL protects the natural environment.
