The United Nations and Environmental Security: Recommendations for the Secretary-General's High-Level Panel on Threats, Challenges, and Change

As part of the UN Foundation’s United Nations and Global Security Initiative, the Environmental Change and Security Project
invited international experts to provide fresh intellectual insights into environmental security. Leading thinkers in the fields of water, climate change, and natural resources prepared three short policy briefs that seek to answer three questions:
• What is the link between environment and security?
• What can be done about it?
• What contributions can be made by collective action mechanisms such as the United Nations?

Complete set of policy briefs by Michael Renner, Hilary French, Alexander Carius, Geoff Dabelko, Aaron Wolf, Nigel Purvis, and Joshua Busby.
