Participants of this workshop will explore the intricate relationships between climate change, human health and the security of nations, and how these relationships are mediated by conflicts arising from scarcity of water resources, impacts on food production, rising energy demands, and deteriorating human health and behavioral changes. The intended outcome is the publication of a document outlining the state-of-the-art of understanding of these issues and their interrelationships as well as identification of future research and policy and management needs.

Participation in this workshop is by invitation only with each attendee presenting an overview of the current understanding of their field followed by a discussion on how their work is related to the theme of the workshop.

Currently the available spaces are full, but if cancellations occur then there is a possibility of accommodating other interested participants.
