This week, Dr. Jessica Eise provides a macro perspective of how climate change could increase conflict, and how we might prevent this from coming to pass. Unaddressed climate change will impact the global order by increasing crises, such as extreme weather events, and disrupting the reliability of resources, such as access to water and food sources. This has the potential to increase global conflict through resource scarcity and political turmoil. However, this can also be prevented through international trade agreements to buffer resource scarcities and aggressive adaptation and mitigation strategies to decrease overall climate change impacts.
