In 2018, the expert working group – together with external researchers and the working group secretariat – will produce research on four geographies: Iraq, Lake Chad, Somalia and a further geography in Central Asia. The reports will build on research and insights from the field to provide integrated assessments of climate-related change and security—as well as other social, political and economic aspects.

The expert working group was initiated during Sweden’s membership of the UN Security Council (2017-18).
The working group secretariat currently consists of five members: Camilla Born (Director), Pernilla Nordqvist (Research Assistant), Nick Mabey (Senior Advisor), Malin Mobjörk (Senior Advisor), Dan Smith (Senior Advisor).
