MetadataShow full item record
In order to ensure future security, the nations of the world must deal putatively with global-wide ecological problems. These problems include; ecological degradation and scarcity of resources, they demonstrate the explosive force of ecologically induced conflict. Many conflicts in the Central Asian region are the result of ecological transformation in combination with other sources of conflict. Preventive measures should be created at the international, regional, and national level for dealing with these ecologically induced risks and settling already existing conflicts. This study addresses the role and significance of these risks in the sense of security and conflict studies. The study examines the current situation in the Central Asian region and the relationships between existing ecologically induced risks and security. Preventive measures for the region are analyzed and assessed. Finally an approach to a comprehensive global system of policy-oriented measures to prevent ecologically caused conflicts will be discussed and developed. An increased sensitivity to ecologically induced conflict and a general review of the meaning of security is needed. International law, a renunciation of sovereignty and international institution-building are necessary for the creation of a global approach to meet this new global challenge
