Climate change increases vulnerability and drives fragility. While the effects of climate change are highly context specific, we know that disadvantaged and low-income communities will be hit hardest by impacts such as water shortages, rising sea levels, and reduced agricultural yields. This will negatively impact livelihoods and food security and can drive increased migration and displacement. While climate change can function as a threat multiplier and amplify the risk of conflict, conflict-affected societies are also less able to tackle the adverse effects of climate change. This can result in a downward spiral of environmental degradation, vulnerability and violence. We work at the forefront of the climate-conflict nexus, providing knowledge and insights to help our clients understand and respond to the interdependencies between climate, fragility, and conflict. Our multidisciplinary team has experience across food and agriculture, livelihoods, resilience, conflict and security, humanitarian delivery, and migration.
