Webinar: Climate Change and Conflict

One of the little-discussed health effects of climate change is how it increases conflict and can lead to war. Climate change is already creating “climate refugees” and increasing social tensions, especially in the poorer nations of the world.

When farmers abandon their land due to years of drought… communities come to blows over shrinking water supplies… whole villages are displaced by sea level rise, then access to food becomes difficult, personal security plummets, the social order is stressed and violence can result.
