The Woodrow Wilson Center’s New Security Beat posted an interesting piece yesterday breaking down two excellent reports by Michael Werz and Laura Conley: Climate Change, Migration, and Conflict: Addressing Complex Crisis Scenarios in the 21st Century, and Climate Change, Migration and Conflict in Northwest Africa. The blog highlights the unique nature of the reports (jointly published by the Center for American Progress and Heinrich Böll Stiftung), which consider the climate-migration nexus in the context of U.S. national security: the first broadly examining four sub-regions of concern (Northwest Africa, South Asia, The Andes and China) and the second honing in on a so-called “arc of tension” in Northwest Africa. It’s worth a read.
