“Coping with Climate Change as a Cause of Conflict in Coast Communities of West Africa” (aka C7-West Africa) is a Project funded by the European Union, aiming at studying the nexus between environmental degradation in the area of the Niger Delta and the raise of local conflicts, as well as at strengthening Western African Coastal communities’ resilience to cope with climate change reducing its impact as a driver of conflict and insecurity in the Region.
More specifically, our objectives are the development of tools, methods and governance structures enabling cooperation between Communities, National authorities and regional actors, in order to implement climate change adaptation measures and prevent environmental crimes, that are exacerbating
the impact of climate change on coastal communities, with a conflict-sensitive approach.
