Specifically, this research will look at violent extremism and identify potential issues in areas receiving or potentially receiving internal and international climate migrants. This research will specifically examine: 1) climate-related migration to urban areas; 2) connections between climate, environment, conflict resolution, and peacebuilding in urban areas; and 3) local and national resilience to long- and short-term climate and environmental pressures.
