Summary

How we respond to climate change and conflict will define the coming decade, and beyond. Millions of families are already experiencing more severe storms or drought. Add threats of violence due to competition over water or control over land and it's a huge challenge. And yet, communities are coming up with creative solutions to tackle these compounding issues. CDA is listening, learning, and building practical tools to help communities everywhere address climate and conflict, together.

Challenge

Peru is the third most forested country in the world and contains over 13% of the Amazon rainforest. The country is highly susceptible to climate-related natural disasters including floods, droughts, and landslides, which are increasingly amplified by the strong effects of El Nino. Agricultural expansion, illegal logging and mining, air and water pollution, and threats to Indigenous communities are also driving conflict, leading to a vicious cycle of intense climate and conflict challenges.

Solution

CDA believes the knowledge and experiences of communities dealing with these issues today is essential to future solutions. By learning with them about what it takes to face and overcome complex crises, patterns are becoming clear, even across different types of climate impacts and conflict - from the USA to Fiji, Ethiopia to Peru. With local partners, CDA is integrating these patterns into practical tools, fit for purpose anywhere climate change and conflict collide.

Long-Term Impact

This case study in Peru will inform and influence the practical tool CDA is building to help communities everywhere address climate and conflict, together. The tool will be available free of charge to any local community, peace/development worker, donor, policymaker, and more working in areas heavily affected by both the climate crisis and conflict. Ultimately, CDA's tool will help anyone working on these crises see them as a system of connected challenges, rather than isolated issues.
