Panel: Climate, conflict and the environment

Of the 25 countries most vulnerable to climate change, 14 are in conflict.
Article 13 August 2021 Australia

Climate change and conflict make a devastating mix. Climate change exacerbates existing social and economic factors that may lead to conflict while conflict and insecurity limit people's ability to cope with climate shocks.
