Climate change and conflict are linked, but not as simply as cause and effect.

Arresting climate change is a major global challenge of our time and cuts across all other development challenges. Ireland is future-proofing its development cooperation by integrating climate action into all areas, so that the poorest and most vulnerable are not left further behind by the climate crisis. This is one of a series of Climate Key Sheets that describe how climate action interacts with pressing development concerns.
