Project ID RAS0125455

The United Nations (UN) recognizes that climate change is a threat to global peace and security, and economic development. Increasing land and ocean temperatures and changing precipitation patterns, as well as the increasing number and intensity of extreme weather events have an adverse impact on arable land and food production, as well as fisheries and aquaculture, bringing the food-water-energy nexus as the potential trigger of sizeable climate related migration and social discontent and unrest. With the current COVID-19 pandemic and its zoonotic origins the focus on the biodiversity-climate change-health nexus has become pertinent.
