A Climate for Conflict: Stories from Somalia

  • New America 740 15th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20005 United States (map)

Struggling with famine, drought, and violence, Somalia today is at a crossroads between a deepening crisis and a path to stability. Desperation is still driving people to crowded cities, refugee camps, or to the ranks of militant groups, even as a newly-elected government looks for a better way forward. 

Photographer and filmmaker Nichole Sobecki and writer Laura Heaton spent 18 months documenting a more personal story of Somalia, one told through the people living with a changing climate and the human consequences. New America is co-hosting this special multi-media event with  The GroundTruth Project, and the Stanley Foundation.
