Final Report - CLICO (Climate change, hydro-conflicts and human security)

Project ID: 244443
Funded under: FP7-SSH


This is the final report of the CLICO project which received funding under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project investigated whether hydro-climatic hazards intensify social tensions and conflicts in the Mediterranean, Middle East and Sahel, or if they provided a catalyst for cooperation and peace. It looked to examine why some countries and communities are more vulnerable to droughts, floods and related conflict, and what types of policies and institutions are necessary to ensure adaptation, security and peace in the face of global and regional hydro-climatic change. The report begins by outlining the context of the project and the methodologies used. The report concludes that that climate and hydrological factors, socio-economic, institutional and political conditions are all important drivers of human insecurity, but their relative importance depends on the specific context in which they interact. It notes that adaptation plays a key role in determining whether climate change is likely to undermine human security.
