Description

The articles in this volume explore how climate contributes to insecurity in the LAC region. They resulted from a partnership between the Igarapé Institute and the Instituto Clima e Sociedade (iCS), both in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, with the support of the German Embassy in Brasília. This partnership yielded a workshop, held in July 2019, that brought together the twelve researchers and practitioners from across the region to discuss how climate and security are linked in LAC. The publication has two key goals. First, it is meant to provide an initial trove of evidence-based research on the links between climate and security in LAC. Most of the articles focus on case studies or comparisons, while others tackle more conceptual dimensions of the climate security debate and the role of governance in LAC. Second, it is intended to raise awareness of these links and to promote solutions-oriented debate among researchers and policymakers within the region.
