Building Resilience to Climate-Security Risks in the Sahel – Insights from Research and Practice

This expert discussion event aimed to provide practical and policy solutions to better manage transboundary climate-related security risks in the Sahel, and to deepen understanding of resilience-building against such risks by governing and civil society actors at multiple levels – local, national, and regional.

This webinar was jointly organised by ECDPM, together with GIZ, MercyCorps and the SPARC Programme (ODI).
