The book by Marcel Leroy investigates the broader context within which environmental and climate factors are affecting conflicts in sub-Saharan Africa, with particular emphasis on Darfur. It includes the project's in-house research, as well as twenty-five contributed articles that were developed from presentations to a conference that was held in Addis Ababa on 20-23 July 2009. At this meeting, academics (including faculty members of the three Darfur universities) and officials of agencies with responsibility for conducting humanitarian efforts and environmental management in Darfur looked at concrete avenues for addressing the crisis. Particular attention is paid to environmental and livelihood aspects of the crisis in Darfur. Conclusions are drawn regarding peace-building in areas facing resource constraints. The book includes research conducted in-house at UPEACE Africa in Addis Ababa under a project funded by the Preventive Diplomacy Programme of the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Also included are twenty-five contributed papers that are based on presentations made at a conference which was organized by the project in Addis Ababa in July 2009.
