Environmental conflict and peacebuilding
The past two decades have witnessed the production of a large body of research work examining the linkage between environmental scarcity, violent conflict, and cooperation. The growing threat of global climate change has also added strength to this area of academic investigation. However, this environmental security polemic is still trying to deliver a well-defined approach to achieving peace. Studies are being undertaken to find the precise pathways by which cooperative actions are expected not only to pre-empt or moderate resource conflicts but also to help diffuse cooperative behavior to other disputed issues. To date there has not been a comprehensive volume covering environmental conflict and peacebuilding. This handbook aims to rectify that by providing a state-of-the-art review of research on how utilization of environmental resources can cause conflicts and how it can be a catalyst for cooperation and peacebuilding.
