CIWARS Daily Sahel Taxonomy of Climate Change Conflict
International donors are calling for two billion dollars in aid to the 4.5 million
people displaced in the Sahel. The Sahel has suffered from a 5 year drought, desertification, poor governance, and at least five armed groups within an easy ride for an armed "technical vehicle".
CIWARS classes this as Hermit Crab Climate Change Conflict. The Islamic State, Boko Haram, Islamic Maghreb and Al Qaeda found a natural home like a Hermit Crab looking for an empty shell.
Without adequate water, and governance it is unlikely this conflict will cease and perhaps that reality accounts for the fact that only $500 million in donations have been pledged.
