Access to natural resources is a central issue for people's livelihoods in developing countries. Inequalities in accessing and managing natural resources lead to irreversible vulnerability situations and global threats in terms of economic, environmental and social objectives. Participants will discuss the links between climate change and production systems such as marine and terrestrial renewable resources, and how they reinforce inequalities at the global and local scale. Examples from Africa will be discussed from sectors such as fisheries and agriculture. The subtle links between climate change, the global economy and local socio-ecological systems will be presented. Potential solutions will be discussed to mitigate existing conflicts related to access to natural resources in Africa.
