In this Humanitarian Governance webinar, Tobias Ide unravels the impact of disasters on armed conflict intensity.

About the presentation

With the number of armed conflicts on a record high and disasters becoming more frequent and intense, both phenomena are increasingly going to overlap.

But while extensive research deals with how climate change and disasters affect the risk of armed conflict onset, we know little about how disasters shape the dynamics of ongoing civil wars.

Based on qualitative and quantitative data from 36 cases of disasters striking conflict zones, this presentation unravels the impact of disasters on armed conflict intensity.
