Climate Change

Ahead of this year’s global climate confernce, COP28, there is concern about how the changing climate can fuel armed conflicts on the continent.

Fighting over water supplies in 2021 forced thousands of people to leave their homes. The UNHCR reported that around 50 people were killed in the clashes.
