As the Obama administration takes over, the 13th issue of the Environmental Change and Security Program Report details the non-traditional security threats-and opportunities-it faces. "Environmental security is making a comeback," says ECSP Director Geoff Dabelko, "notably in the United States, where signs indicate that the next administration will tackle environment, population, health, and development challenges that impact security." In a special feature entitled "New Directions in Demographic Security," seven demographic experts analyze the links connecting population and environmental dynamics to conflict. The report also features articles on the population-climate change nexus and the UN Environment Programme's peacebuilding work in conflict zones.
