Where are the most vulnerable areas to climate induced insecurities and risks in Mali?
This factsheet gives answers on how climate exacerbates root causes of conflict in Mali, using spatial hotspot analysis. The findings show that areas of high conflict and harsh climate interactions co-occurred with hotspots where socio-economic vulnerabilities (undernutrition and inequality) are present. This occurs in Tele, Douekire, Banicane, southern of Gounzoureye, central part of Menaka, and southern of Anderamboukane.
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?
