Climate and security are interconnected in multiple ways. On the one hand, climate change worsens food safety, migratory influxes and conflicts. On the other hand, environmental crimes damage our forests, biodiversity, populations, therefore intensifying global warming. In this sense, the phenomenon hits all corners of the world, specially those already vulnerable such as the Amazon and parts of West Africa.
The Climate Security program of Igarapé Institute aims to strengthen public and corporate policies in a way that they prioritize the relationship between these two areas. It means preventing the destruction of the environment and lives.
Our actions include the development of technologies to monitor and analyse climate threats and environmental crimes; support the enforcement of the law; suggest modernization measures to supply chains; and strengthen regional cooperation.
