The African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (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. Highlights of the seminar are presented here in a series of video clips.
