Socio-economic impacts of violent conflict and climate change

Project background

The global landscape has been increasingly marked by the challenges of armed conflicts and climate change, which have profound socio-economic implications. Armed conflicts, characterized by their destructive nature, disproportionately impact different segments of the population based on gender and age. At the same time, climate change and its associated shocks, such as droughts, floods, and extreme weather events, have emerged as critical factors hampering economic stability and development. These climatic events often exacerbate existing inequalities, disproportionately affecting women and youth.

Project objectives

This research aims to delve into the intersection of armed conflict and climate change, exploring how conflict and climate events jointly shape socio-economic outcomes with a particular focus on gender and age disparities. By doing so, it seeks to contribute to a more integrated and nuanced understanding of these global challenges and how to mitigate their consequences.
