Sudan (Darfur)
In Darfur, Sudan, the dramatic reduction in rainfall over the last fifty years and the southward advance of the Sahara desert have forced the Sudanese province's northern Muslims and its southern Christian/Animists to arm themselves and begin competing for reduced land and water resources, in what is widely regarded as the world's first climate change war. According to the United Nations, 300,000 people have died, and fighting in the region has displaced nearly three million people.
