Climate-Related Security Risks in IGAD Countries: Re-Envisioning National Adaptation Planning

This paper examines climate-related security risks in the IGAD region with a particular focus on National Adaptation Planning (NAP). It explores these risks from four pathways contained in the IGAD Conceptual Framework for climate-security nexus, namely: threats to food and water security, climate-induced mobility, historical grievances and cultural practices, and governance and fragility. It argues that these risks continue to impact state fragility with implications for peace and security in the IGAD region. The paper recommends that member countries align their NAP Planning with the IGAD Regional Climate Change Strategy.
