Abstract

This policy brief is based on the Center for Mediterranean Integration’s (CMI) flagship report on “The Water Security Nexus in North Africa – Catalyzing Regional Coordination Around Climate Change, Resilience and Migration” project, prepared by the CMI team and commissioned by the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO). This project uses a nexus approach to study the links between water security, climate change and migration. This policy brief is a youth-driven analysis of the uncertainty surrounding climate trends and the complex nature of the migration conditions that are posing a great challenge for policymakers in the North Africa region. It seeks to provide insights from youth into the region’s complex climate, water and migration nexus to help inform policymakers and future development interventions. Policy recommendations include developing government policies coherent with the nexus, strengthening regional cooperation and investing in youth initiatives.
