Climate change is the defining crisis of our time and it is happening faster than we feared.
Environmental shocks are exacerbating conflict and multiplying humanitarian crises in contexts of war.
In light of this, it is critical to bring together the peacemaking and the environment agendas.
Yemen and Somalia are both examples of where fragility, conflict and environmental problems are closely intertwined. These countries have had double exposure to years of violent conflict and reoccurring droughts and floods.
While it is clear that climate change is dramatically changing the nature of conflict, the question now should be, how we adapt the methods of how we make peace?
