Africa, Climate Change, Environment and Security Briefing
8 Apr 2011 - Brussels
16 March 2011
On 8 April 2011 the IES and The Centre in Brussels will host a presentation of the recent publication "Climate Change and Security in Africa: Vulnerability Report".
The report recognises that the security implications of climate change are of increasing relevance to peace and human security. In Africa - where adaptation mechanisms may be limited or uncoordinated ? many communities are especially vulnerable to insecurity related to water, food, energy, migration and natural hazards.
