Climatic Change Cause of Dafur Conflict-UN

Climate change is partly to blame for the conflict in Sudan's Darfur region, where droughts have provoked fighting over water sources, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in an editorial published Saturday.

"Almost invariably, we discuss Darfur in convenient military and political shorthand - an ethnic conflict pitting Arab militias against black rebels and farmers," Ban wrote in The Washington Post. "Look to its roots, though, and you discover a more complex dynamic."

Ban says that rainfall in Sudan began declining two decades ago, a phenomenon he says is due "to some degree, from man-made global warming." He says similar ecological problems are behind conflicts in other countries, including Somalia and Ivory Coast.

Settled farmers and Arab nomadic herders lived in peace with each other till the drought, he wrote, but as conditions worsened, water and food shortages disrupted the peace and "evolved into the full-fledged tragedy we witness today."

More than 200,000 people have been killed in conflicts, in Darfur since 2003. The local rebels took up arms against the Sudanese government, accusing it of decades of neglect. Sudanese leaders are accused of unleashing the pro-government Arab militia, known as the janjaweed, a charge the government denies.

After months Sudan bowed down to U.N. and Western pressure and agreed in the past week to allow a joint U.N.-African Union force of up to 19,000 peacekeepers to replace the 7,000-member AU mission now in Darfur.

Ban called the agreement "significant progress" after "four years of diplomatic inertia." But he warned that a long-term solution was needed for "the essential dilemma" - the scarcity of good land.

"Any peace in Darfur must be built on solutions that go to the root causes of the conflict," he said.

The U.N. chief called for sustained economic development, possibly involving new irrigation and water storage tech
