Environmental Change, Good Governance, Development and Human Security

Led by Nils Petter Gleditsch

Jan 2000 – Dec 2002

This project contrasts a neo-Malthusian position (arguing that resource scarcity is an important factor in armed conflict) with a cornucopian position (which argues that scarcities can be overcome by technical innocation, substitution, and adequate pricing of resources). These two perspectives are pursued in subprojects dealing with water conflict, the significance of democratic governance for environmental policy, the importance of natural resources in conflict, and the role of demographic pressures.
