Climate Change and International Water Conflict in Central Asia

Source: Journal of Peace Research, 2012

Author(s): Thomas Bernauer and Tobias Siegfried

Topics: Climate Change, Conflict Causes, Renewable Resources

Added: 18/06/2017

 

We engage in a critical assessment of the neo-malthusian claim that climatic changes can be an important source of international tensions, in the extreme even militarized interstate disputes. The most likely scenario is conflict over water allocation in international catchments shared by poorer, less democratic, and politically less stable countries,...

Multilateral political treaties. Just-in-time supply chains. Internet server infrastructure. Each of these illustrates the complex web of interdependence and reciprocity in our globalized society. The threats and challenges that confront it are often just as complex, with climate change being a particularly wicked problem, as uncertainties are many, impacts are...

Conflicts and Security in Integrated Water Resources Management

Conflicts and Security in Integrated Water Resources Management

Source: Environmental Science and Policy, 2017

Author(s): Mohammad Al-Saidi

Topics: Governance, Peace and Security Operations, Renewable Resources

Added: 18/06/2017

Universal remedies of IWRM can thus lead to resistance, conflicts and ultimately failures of interventions. This paper examines how conflicts...
