Climate Change and Conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa

The Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs (IFI) at the American University of Beirut (AUB) published a new working paper on the possible relation between climate change and rising violence and conflict in the Middle East and North Africa region. IFI’s affiliated scholar Jamal Saghir studied how rising temperatures and water scarcity are adding pressure on already strained economies and politically unstable region. He also examined conflict-sensitive adaptation measures which can help avoid situations in which climate change heightens existing risks of destabilization or violent conflict.
