Africa is one of the areas that is most vulnerable to both climate change and conflict. Climate change has been framed as a conflict risk multiplier, with the potential to exacerbate existing challenges and fault lines, yet the link between climate change and violent conflict remains highly complex, contextual and often indirect. This panel discussion will take the conflict in Cabo Delgado, Mozambique, as a jumping off point for a broader discussion around the climate-conflict nexus and consider implications for governance responses.
