Climate Change and African Political Stability Program

The Robert S. Strauss Center?s program on Climate Change and African Political Stability (CCAPS) seeks to better understand the relationship between the growing threat of climate change and the ability of African countries to manage complex emergencies, including humanitarian disasters and violent conflict. A collaborative research program among four institutions and led by The University of Texas, the CCAPS program aims to provide practical guidance for U.S. policymakers, enrich the current body of scholarly literature, and nurture a future generation of scholars and practitioners.

The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Defense?s Minerva Initiative?a university-based, social science research program focused on areas of strategic importance to national security policy.

Through quantitative analysis, GIS mapping, case studies and field interviews, the program will identify whether climate change could trigger disasters that undermine state stability, define strategies for building African state capacity, and assess global development aid responses. The CCAPS team seeks to engage Africa policy communities in the United States, Africa, and elsewhere as a critical part of its research.
