Ende Oktober 2019 präsentiert die Berliner Denkfabrik adelphi in Niamey (Niger; 24.10.) und Berlin (Deutschland; 30.10.) die Studie„Shoring Up Stability“. Erstmals zeigt eine wissenschaftliche Studie, wie der Klimawandel auf Sicherheitsrisiken wirkt und die humanitäre Krise der Region verschärft.
The Lake Chad region is caught in a conflict trap. It is experiencing one of the world’s worst humanitarian emergencies with an estimated 10.7 million people in need of assistance. adelphi’s study Shoring up Stability demonstrates, for the first time, how climate change is interacting with the conflict and compounds the crisis in the Lake Chad region.
Based on the study Shoring Up Stability, experts from the region will discuss how humanitarian, stabilization and resilience focused actions, such as the Regional Stabilization Strategy (RSS) and the new UNDP- initiated and German-supported Regional Stabilization Facility for Lake Chad can address climate and fragility in order to tackle the root causes of existing as well as future risks in the region.
Findings indicate that military responses to the crisis are not working. Instead, it identifies alternative entry points for addressing the root causes of the crisis to enable sustainable, people centred solutions, such as strengthening the link between the population around Lake Chad and state institutions by providing better access to services, information and livelihoods.
If the climate-fragility risks are carefully managed, then the lake could once again be an engine for sustainable livelihoods and stability in the region, increasing food security and reducing poverty.
Climate-proof and conflict-sensitive interventions represent better value for money and offer a better chance of delivering a lasting peace and sustainable development. Following a short presentation of the climate-fragility assessment and learnings from the field, a panel of study authors and local experts will discuss the merits of such an approach, what has been done and what more can be done to advance such assessments, as well reflect on what lessons we can draw from this case for other regions.
Inviting the audience to comment and respond, the subsequent discussion will revolve around these questions at the launch events:
