Climate Risk Profile: Southern Africa

The Climate Risk Profile for Southern Africa provides forward-looking data on the climate in Southern Africa with the goal of supporting resilience-oriented short to long-term planning. The profile summarises projected climate parameters and related sectoral impacts under two different emissions scenarios from now until 2080.

Climate, Peace and Security Study: Somali Region, Ethiopia

This study explores the effects of climate impacts such as extreme heat and water stress as risks to peace and human security in the Somali Region of Ethiopia. It identifies five key climate insecurity pathways as well as entry points and priorities as guidance for future climate- and conflict-sensitive, peace-oriented programming in the region.

Climate Security Study: Kenya

This study identifies four interrelated climate security pathways that affect food systems, livelihood security and conflict in Kenya. Through actionable recommendations, it explores ways the World Food Programme (WFP) in Kenya can better mainstream climate adaptation and resilience-building in its strategies, programmes and projects to build sustainable food systems, security and peace.

Building climate and conflict resilient livelihoods and food systems: Insights from East Africa

This policy paper frames WFP’s programming in climate resilience, livelihoods and food security within the climate security discourse. It aims to offer insights into action and investments for WFP’s work in East Africa to support climate and conflict informed food systems, and livelihoods that support resilience, ultimately contributing to peace and security.

Mali - How climate and environmental change compound conflict and inequality

Climate, Peace and Security Assessment: Mali is the first full-length national case study using the Weathering Risk methodology, combining state-of-the-art climate impacts data with on-the-ground conflict analysis. The multimedia case study uses visual storytelling to explore findings, recommendations and stories from people who are experiencing both rising insecurity and significant impacts of climate and environmental change. It provides a ground-breaking level of detail into a country long seen as a hotspot for compound climate change and conflict risks.
