Brown-bag Lunch: The Climate Security Nexus in Ethiopia
29 September, 1-1:30 pm CET / 7-7:30 am EST

Ethiopia is a hotspot of high climate variabilities, high political insecurity, conflicts, and widespread food and nutrition insecurities across its populations.

This session discussed the following questions:

  • Is climate exacerbating existing threats that could increase the risk of conflict in Ethiopia? 
  • Are areas of high climate variability correlated to high socio-political insecurity in Ethiopia?
  • How can evidence inform programming and policy to target existing risks and insecurities that could be exacerbated by climate change?


  • Dr. Peter Läderach, Principal Climate Scientist, CGIAR/WFP
