Published on
 

This factsheet gives answers on how climate exacerbates root causes of conflict in Kenya, using network analysis. The climate, conflict nexus in Kenya is strongly dependant on the ability of the agricultural sector to adapt to climate shocks which is mediated by two underlying pillars, 1) the level of education of a household, and 2) the nutritional security of those households

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?
