As the US ponders its future involvement in Afghanistan, we underestimate climate change as one major threat that will cause increased regional instability and conflict. The country tied up in a crossroads of conflict, and now climate change imperils progress and peace in this fragile country.
Afghanistan climate change story that Sophia Jones and I worked on together is live now on National Geographic! No words can express what this project means to me. Through the work, I have had the privilege to meet many incredible people, inspirational and courageous mothers, female students, and farmers in Afghanistan. However, the Climate crisis and its devastating consequences fuel mass migration, child marriage, and conflict that affect women and girls in particular.
Please take a moment to read this important investigation on the link between conflict, girl's education, child marriage, and climate change in Afghanistan.
