People in the department of Madre de Dios/Peru, the state of Acre/Brazil, and the department of Pando/Bolivia experience similar conflicts over land, land use, and access to resources. At the same time, each conflict reveals distinct characteristics and dynamics, arising from its history, legal regulation, institutional (in-)capacities, and cultura...

This paper analyzes how the governance of non-renewable natural resources affects different dimensions of human security in local sites of extraction. We show how the analysis of human security can be embedded in a multi-scalar political ecology perspective to combine the strong suits of both approaches: a detailed, multi-dimensional assessment of...
Chapter
Based on a framework of global energy use, investment in different energy pathways and related impacts, historical data and future projections are presented and discussed for key variables, such as human population, economic growth, energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and energy‐related investments. Essential relationships between variable...

Purpose of Review: The aim of this paper is to explore the nexus of climate change, land use, and conflict. A particular focus is placed on the human security risks associated with the three elements. Recent Findings: Climate change has been perceived as a “threat multiplier,” directly aggravating human security risks, such as food and water insec...
Chapter
Gender is a topic that every large development and peacebuilding organisation mainstreams in its programming. However, often “gender” implies a focus on women. We argue that this is not enough to utilise the full potential of a meaningful and effective integration of gender in specific projects, particularly in the peacebuilding and the water secto...
Article
A bstract The ability to conduct interdisciplinary research is crucial to address complex real-world problems that require the collaboration of different scientific fields, with global warming being a case in point. To produce integrated climate-related knowledge, climate researchers should be trained early on to work across boundaries and gain an...
Article
Full-text available
Resilience is a widely used concept among development, environmental, security and peacebuilding organizations. However, resilience has rarely been applied in conjunction with the potentially complementary concept of environmental security. Therefore, this paper explores how the concepts of resilience and environmental security can be jointly appli...
Chapter
A sustainability transition requires innovations, investment and learning to support transformation processes in different fields, including new technologies, products and infrastructures, as well as new social rules, norms and interactions. Greening the economy rests on the rapid and effective dissemination of climate-friendly technologies, and in...
