One of the most compelling reasons for studying environmental science and management is the fact that, in the view of many leading authorities, we are now experiencing an environmental crisis; indeed, many authors have claimed that the present environmental crisis is unprecedented in its magnitude, pace and severity Park Awareness of this environmental crisis has grown since the s, partly as a result of the prominence given to major so-called 'environmental' disasters such as the Sahelian droughts of the s and s and the nuclear accident at Chernobyl in
COVID-19, Climate Change & Environmental Degradation: Key Asks for Public Sector Partners
However, considerable uncertainties exist withregard to the extent and geographical distribution of these changes. Predicting scenarios for how climate-related environmental change may influence human societies and political systems necessarily involves an even higher degree of uncertainty. The direst predictions about the impacts of global warming warn about greatly increased risks of violent conflict over increasingly scarce resources such as freshwater and arable land. We argue that our best guess about the future has to be based on our knowledge about the relationship between demography, environment and violent conflict in the past. Previous rigorous studies in the field have mostly focused on national-level aggregates. This article represents a new approach to assess the impact of environment on internal armed conflict by using geo-referenced GIS data and small geographical, rather than political, units of analysis.
Climate Change, Environmental Degradation and Armed Conflict
Efforts have to increase for developing strategies to address the root causes of anthropogenic climate change, as well as for building resilience for some of the most severe impacts of climate change and environmental degradation. Circular Economy could be a moonshot project, helping to reduce CO 2 emissions and creating new jobs at local level, decentralised, where the goods and their users are situated. More on this Megatrend. In the EU, only a few cities do. Techniques for addressing pollution Efforts should increase for finding and implementing techniques for addressing pollution e.

Climate change will have a progressively increasing impact on environmental degradation and environmentally dependent socio-economic systems with potential to cause substantial population displacement. The key concerns in Less Developed Countries LDCs will include serious threats to food security and health, considerable economic decline, inundation of coastal areas, and degradation of land and fresh water resources Reuveny in Polit Geogr, However, we know little about the interplay between environmental change and stresses on ecological systems, resulting socio-economic vulnerability and potential outcomes in terms of population displacement or induced migration.
