Introduction :

Background

Insecurity is mounting in north-western Nigeria, due to persistent herder-farmer tensions, rising crime and banditry, inter-ethnic distrust, and unsustainable natural resource extraction. The region is highly vulnerable to and affected by the impacts of climate change which is compounding existing drivers of insecurity. Communities in Katsina, Sokoto and Zamfara are amongst the worst affected by a growing crisis exacerbated by climate change risks. Nigeria has faced cycles of violence since independence in 1960. According to the Global Risk Index INFORM, Nigeria has one of the highest projected conflict risk indexes and is at increased risk of socio-economic vulnerability and food insecurity. Violence has reached alarming levels: the murder rate in Nigeria was 34.5 per 100 000 inhabitants in 2016, which compares with a global average of 6 per 100 000 in that year.

The adverse effects of climate change on natural resource availability and scarcity have been identified to contribute to aggravating existing drivers of conflict. There is a gap in the governmental systems to collect and manage reliable data around climate change-related variability that can affect agricultural production. The violent conflict has altered the local coping capacities of the rural communities to deal with climatic risks affecting their livelihoods, creating a vicious cycle where natural disasters hit harder, aggravating existing tensions and leading to new conflicts. Environmental degradation has increased in urban centers as the people cannot go to forested areas to get wood for cooking and heating because these areas are now inhabited by bandits. Thus, populations have started to cut trees and shrubs around urban areas, deteriorating natural barriers and ecosystems that prevent floods from occurring. As a result, floods have increased during the rainy season, and the lack of data to predict and build resilience capacities has led to immense infrastructure loss and further aggravating food production distribution and livelihoods.

Seeking to foster resilience against climate and security risks, UNDP with support from the Government of Norway is implementing a project titled “Northwest Climate-Peace Hubs: A Climate Security Approach to Conflict Prevention”. This project will through a conflict-sensitive manner contribute towards:

1.            Improved access to data supporting decision-making for anticipatory actions to climate and conflict risks

2.            Increased access conflict sensitive and climate resilient livelihoods and green jobs

3.            Strengthened systems and practices for communal management of natural resources.
