2018, the Department of Peace and Conflict Research at Uppsala University and PRIO
co-hosted a joint Workshop on Climate Change and Security in Uppsala. The
workshop brought together an international group of twenty scholars and experts
to discuss ongoing and emergent research on a variety of topics related to
climate change and security. The discussions highlighted a variety of topics
including the consequences of resource scarcity, extreme weather events, food
price shocks, land use competition, demographic pressure, and environmental
migration. The program included presentations on 14 projects as well as a public
keynote lecture by Professor W. Neil Adger on sustainable urbanization.
workshop was co-organized by Nina von Uexkull and Halvard Buhaug and sponsored
by the PRIO-based research project Climate Variability and
Security Threats (CLIMSEC), funded by the European Research
Council, and the Uppsala-based project on Climate
Change, Food Insecurity and Violent Conflict, funded by the
Swedish Research Council, SIDA, and FORMAS.
