Climate change and peacebuilding: an emerging research agenda

This piece dear reader forms part of a series of articles on climate change and health. The first piece was on whether Botswana can use the Muskoka Initiative to revitalize primary health care. The second piece looked at Global Health and Climate Change: Moving from Rhetoric to Action.  This third piece dear reader focuses on the nexus between Climate Change and Peace Building based on the quick scoping review of the literature on climate – conflict research. A thorough review and assessment of the literature on climate change and peacebuilding (making) is beyond the scope of this piece. This piece is however, a deliberate open call to colleagues in the social sciences discipline to wake up and smell the coffee and not hold on convictions and irritating scheming narrative of the pigeonholing of disciplines.  Doing so is out right WITCHCRAFT!!.

Let me start with a disclaimer, dear reader. I am not a political scientist and international relations scholar or researcher, I do not aspire to become one, but I am however, trained in the social sciences of medicine with a specialty in Global  Health Policy and Systems Research. I am hardcore Policy monk.
