Environmental Peacebuilding: Managing Natural Resource Conflicts in a Changing World
Swisspeace Annual Conference 2007
The present swisspeace conference paper takes up some of the following points from both a research and a practice-oriented perspective: (1) explore the linkages between natural resource and conflict management in developing countries; (2) provide insights into the challenges and best practices of the peaceful management of key renewable natural resources in different parts of the world; (3) foster exchange between researchers and practitioners in achieving a more holistic understanding of the complexities of ‘environmental peacebuilding’; and (4) formulate entry points for improving current intervention strategies by external actors as well as entry points for innovative future research in the realm of environmental conflict and resource management.
