Afghanistan is suffering for more than four decades from a devastating war that cannot be limited to the country's boundaries, but that has regional and even international dimensions. Besides, the country is assessed as one of the most vulnerable countries affected by the adverse impact of climate change, in particular in relation to droughts and floods. Temperature is estimated to increase more than the global average, with warming expected to reach 1.7-2.3 Celsius by 2050. What impact will climate change have on the development of the country? With agriculture employing 60% of the population, how will it affect the livelihood of the Afghan people? What are the possible implications for the future of any peace process in the country? And how is the relationship with the two neighbours – Iran and Pakistan – affected by water scarcity?

In the digital panel discussion, we will discuss the effects of climate change in Afghanistan with three experts.

Alias Wardak - Expert in the fields of water and energy, lecturer at Siegen University, works for 11 years as policy advisor and manager on infrastructure projects in Afghanistan

Benafsha Mirbacha - Expert in water diplomacy and regional cooperation, civil society activist with extensive experience in research and advocacy

Mujib Ahmad Azizi - Researcher at Afghanistan Research and Evaluation Unit, with particular focus on water management

The event will be moderated by Teresa Inclán (Heinrich Böll
Foundation Schleswig-Holstein)
and Prof. Florian Dünckmann (Kiel University, Department of
