Report coverA new report from SDSN Youth investigates the impacts of climate change and ecological crises on the peace and security of young people.

Climate change has been termed as a “threat multiplier” and associated with challenges such as food insecurity, water stress, forced migration, and economic recessions. The report explores the relationship between climate change, security and the development prospects of youth populations, specifically in the Middle East and Africa.

SDSN Youth has produced the report as an official thematic paper to support the Progress Study on Youth, Peace & Security mandated by UN Security Council Resolution 2250, which will be submitted to the UN Security Council by the Secretary General Antoniou Guitteres at the end of 2017.
