#10 (S2E4): Conflict, Climate, and the Environment. Part 2: Iraq and Yemen

In S2E2, we explored the impact of conflict on the natural environment, and in turn, on civilian lives, in Ukraine. In this episode, we bring you to Iraq and Yemen to explore the reverse: how climate change can serve as a driver of conflict, and in turn, affect civilians.
