This comprehensive Handbook tackles the increasingly urgent problem of the impact of climate change on conflict and human security. It analyses the ways in which scarcity of resources leads to food, water and health insecurities, resulting in population migration. Chapters cover how these contribute globally to societal insecurity and violent conflict in a growing number of regions. Featuring contributions from leading international scholars, the Handbook is divided into thematic sections, examining first the effects of environmental scarcity on security at a macro level before delving into region-specific issues and challenges. The final section investigates the actors, institutions and processes engaged with environmental security, discussing the shifting international political discourse and how this is challenging the conservative military security paradigm. The combination of comparative global analysis alongside regionally focused studies makes this Handbook an invaluable resource for all scholars and students of environment and climate security. It will also be of interest to policy professionals working on issues of environmental scarcity and new security challenges.

'The contributors to this edited volume seek to fill the gaps in existing knowledge on these topics, and do so in a creative and well-researched manner, making the book a reliable reference source for further studies in this field.' -- Fatemeh Shayan, International Affairs 'Swain, OEjendal and Jagerskog's important Handbook brings new debates, new voices and new cases to the growing research literature on environment and security links and threats to human security at local, national, regional and global scale.' -- Stacy D. VanDeveer, University of Massachusetts, US 'The editors rightly shine a spotlight on the human security dimensions of environment and security links in this Handbook. This more inclusive approach provides a more complete picture of the multi-layered complexity of connections, avoiding the reductionism that afflicts some treatments of these topics. This Handbook reaches beyond the usual suspects to provide in-depth analysis in a wide range of country level and issue specific chapters.' -- Geoffrey Dabelko, Ohio University, US 'The Handbook of Security and the Environment offers a unique perspective on the intersection between the traditional notions of security and emerging concepts of environmental security. It effectively captures the contemporary knowledge base on environmental security and advances it considerably by exploring pragmatic and actionable steps that can enhance the prospects of enduring global peace. The nuanced analysis captures different geographical contexts and international actors, and unpacks innovations in securing environmental resources - notably food, water and energy - against global impacts of climate change, excessive resource exploitation, mass migration, volatility in food prices, and spiking water scarcity.' -- Zafar Adeel, Simon Fraser University, Canada
