Quote (without marks)
The many Malians who depend on the land for their livelihoods will need greater support as climate change impacts are felt more strongly. That means better information sharing to support conflict-sensitive climate adaption, more inclusive natural resource management, and support for climate-smart, conflict-sensitive agricultural practices. Where security forces are deployed in UN and other international missions, they should be able to help populations to adapt sustainably to climate change, particularly those who are already socially excluded.
