Published on
 

This factsheet gives answers on how climate exacerbates root causes of conflict in Uganda, using network analysis. Results show that, with the Ugandan economy heavily reliant on subsistance agriculture, the network indicates the second cropping season is the most vulerable, leading to poverty risks and conflict

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?
