Policy Brief 2

Policy-making in the face of climate change, water conflicts and human security. 

Contract number: SSH‐CT‐2010‐244443
Work Package: WP7
Partner responsible: Ecologic Institute
Deliverable author(s):Christiane Gerstetter, Eleftheria Kampa

Abstract
The 1st CLICO policy brief presents insights on emerging policies at the interface of climate change, water and human security at national and international level. Ten case studies were conducted in various  countries in the he Mediterranean, the Middle East and the Sahel  and at UN and EU level. These investigate whether the link between climate change and human security/conflict is being addressed through targeted policies. The studies show that so far there are few specific policies addressing this interface. However, policies such as a Turkish agricultural insurance scheme and the creation of water user associations in Egypt highlight that even policies not explicitly aimed at preventing conflicts or risks to human security may have beneficial impacts to this end.
