How does climate exacerbate root causes of conflict in Mali? An impact pathway analysis

Published on
 

This factsheet gives answers on how climate exacerbates root causes of conflict in Mali, using an impact pathway analysis. Three main impact pathways are identified: 1) Resource availability and livelihood insecurity ; 2) Farmer-herder conflict in the Inner Niger Delta; 3)Mobility and resource competition in the South.

This publication is part of a factsheet series reporting on the findings of the CGIAR FOCUS Climate Security Observatory work in Africa (Kenya, Mali, Nigeria, Senegal, Sudan, Uganda, Zimbabwe). The research is centered around 5 questions: 1. How does climate exacerbate root causes of conflict? 2. Where are hotspots of climate insecurities ? 3.What is the underlying structure of the climate, conflict, and socio-economic system? 4. Are climate and security policies coherent and integrated? 5. Are policy makers aware of the climate security nexus?
