Climate change is exacerbating the vulnerability of millions of people living in fragile or conflict-affected environments.
This session will focus on the experiences of people directly affected by - and working on - conflict and climate, shaping global policy and broadening the prioritization of addressing conflict and climate in fragile contexts in relation to other stressors.
The most severe impacts of climate change are where capacities to deal with these changes are eroded by conflict, fragility, unbalanced development and natural resource management choices.
