The New Security Beat

27 Feb 2010

Population growth, water scarcity, degraded ecosystems, the resource curse, pandemic disease, and forced migration are the beat covered by The New Security Beat. “Often linked to civil conflict and war, these problems are today’s new security threats.”

“The staff of theĀ Environmental Change and Security Program (ECSP) at theĀ Woodrow Wilson Center maintains this blog as a way to promote dialogue on the connections among environmental, health, and population dynamics and their links to conflict, human insecurity, and foreign policy.”
