CLIMATE CHANGE LATIN-AMERICA: IMPACTS ON VIOLENCE AFFECTED COMMUNITIES AND ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE

The underlying question in this briefing note is:

How does climate change translate to communities heavily affected by organized armed violence?

Is it possible to find correlations between climate change and organized criminal gangs’ ability to exert control? And if so, does this have implications on access to health care services?

The aim of this briefing note is not to conclude on these questions, but rather to inform Norcross internal discussion on climate change in humanitarian crises settings. The aim is to point to existing research, propose research questions and give guidance on what to focus on and not.
