ACCORD 2011 Climate Change & Conflict Expert Seminar - Part IV

ACCORD held a two day expert seminar on 15 & 16 September 2011, to identify issues and recommendations for ensuring that adaptation to climate change is conflict-sensitive. Policy makers, practitioners and scientists presented new research on the linkages between climate change and conflict in Africa, and analysed various tools, policies and approaches to ensure the prevention of conflicts arising from climate change but also from adaptation efforts. The outcomes of the seminar were distributed in advance of COP17 in the form of a Policy and Practice Brief. Read more about the seminar here.

Presentations made by experts during the seminar were filmed and important extracts of these presentations are available on this page and previous pages.
