This project involves studying the connection between climate change and large scale conflict within Darfur. This has been accomplished by initially giving a summary of the history of Sudan and Darfur Sudan, while ending with a chronology of events leading up to 2002/3 when large scale conflict between ethnic groups and the state occured in Darfur. This is followed by an analysis of the events leading up to conflict, focusing on the group vs. group and group vs. state interacton over resources in the area which climate change brought about. Following this is a discussion section in which relevant connections between the conflict in Dafur and outside forces are discussed. The conclusion lends to the fact that the confllict in Dafur is related to flow policies of managing confclit emitted from Khartoum.
