Shoring Up Stability: Addressing Climate and Conflict in Lake Chad

"The session aims to create a greater understanding of the linked drivers of climate-fragility risks." 

The session aimed to better inform practitioners and policymakers about climate change, fragility, and disaster risk management nexus and to serve as a starting point for devising new approaches for working on climate change and disasters in FCV affected areas. Speakers, drawing on their knowledge from the ground, shared their experiences to highlight case-specific challenges and opportunities in combining FCV, disaster risk management, and climate change adaption approaches in practice.

This session is part of the Fragility Forum 2020 Virtual Series.
