Norvergence: The relation between climate change and Syria’s civil war

Norvergence researchers worked day and night to collect and assemble the data related to the Syrian civil war, the 2nd deadliest war of the 21st century.

Apart from factors such as religious tensions, sociopolitical tensions, bad condition of the economy, the one thing that no one discussed in detail is the climate change.

Water scarcity during the period of 2006-2011 played a significant role in igniting the civil war. A study co-authored by Richard Seager, a climate scientist at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory also clearly pointed out the drought factor behind the social unrest in Syria.

Norvergence in its research not only discussed climate change effect on the Syrian civil war but also how various world leaders reported it.
