Climate change, population growth and overuse of natural resources are contributing to desperate conditions, and violent extremist organisations are weaponizing the scarcity of water. Nowhere is this trend more visible than in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).  

Speakers in our eighth webinar will explore how climate science can support peace in the Middle East and North Africa.

A CGIAR webinar series on climate security that seeks to connect thought leaders, and future partners in the climate security space and its concurrent nexuses.

Join this webinar series, and a number of distinguished speakers, to discuss the need to prioritize the climate crisis as a national and international security threat – globally. The main objectives of these webinars will be: 1) to bridge the gap between science and policy; 2) to discuss the importance of land, water, food systems science for peace and security; 3) to identify high-level policy messages to inform the international agenda on food systems, climate, and security
