A new climate for peace

Taking action on climate and fragility risks
Summary: 

This report, commissioned by members of the G7, identifies seven compound climate-fragility risks that pose serious threats to the stability of states and societies in the decades ahead. Based on a thorough assessment of existing policies on climate change adaptation, development cooperation and humanitarian aid, and peacebuilding, it recommends that the G7 take concrete action, both as individual members and jointly, to tackle climate-fragility risks and increase the resilience of states and societies to them. The report is produced in partnership with adelphi, the European Union Institute for Security Studies and the Wilson Center. Find out more about this joint project at www.newclimateforpeace.org.
