What role does climate change play in the Sahel’s current instability? What are the best climate emergency adaptation strategies to promote in the area? What role does Europe play in the Central Sahel’s climate resilience, and what role could it play in the future? These are some of the questions examined by the study “Climate change and resilience in the Central Sahel” led by CIDOB in collaboration with the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM) and the German think tank Adelphi.
The study, which has analysed the impact of climate change in this vulnerable region for a year and a half, is part of the CASCADES project studying the cascading effects of climate change and how they may affect Europe. CASCADES, in which 12 European research centres participate, is funded by the European Union’s H2020 research and innovation programme.
