New research on the Niger River Basin finds that the effects of climate change in the region are pervasive and that "latent conflict" between groups -- disagreements and disputes over damage to farmland and restricted access to water, but not physical violence -- is common.

"You've got vulnerable people, vulnerable households, vulnerable communities living within... fragile systems, governance systems, [and] environmental systems," said Phil Vernon, International Alert's director of programs for Africa and peacebuilding issues, at "Climate Change, Water, and Conflict in the Niger River Basin," an event hosted by the Wilson Center on November 17.
