Framing the Climate, Peace, and Security Agenda in the Horn of Africa
This paper examines how the African Union and the sub-regional mechanism Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) have framedband responded to the climate-security nexus in the Horn of Africa. The paper evaluates these continental responses in the context of multilateral responses to climate change. The paper acknowledges the human security threats faced in the Horn of Africa and makes several policy recommendations. These include the calls for a coordinated African Union’s position ahead of COP 28 in areas of climate mitigation, adaptation and enhanced global cooperation to address the effects of climate change.
