I hypothesize that in regions neglected by their governments, in addition to facing a recent or continued history of violent conflict, effects of climate change will intensify the probability of having armed conflict, and hence, we should predict a greater level of overall causalities (i.e. civilian deaths) compared to regions that have similar significant climate change effects but lack a similar history of violence and government neglect issues. I use Turkana as my positive case study and find that there has been an increase in armed conflict due to climate variability in Northern Kenya.
