    Ecoviolence explores links between environmental scarcities of key renewable resources_such as cropland, fresh water, and forests_and violent rebellions, insurgencies, and ethnic clashes in developing countries.   Conflict due to renewable resource scarcity could be cyclical, implying recurring phases of conflict. However, such conflict cannot last for ever. We use the model to examine various policy scenarios concerning population control and technical innovations in harvesting and natural resource by:

Dobkowski and Isidor Wallimann establish a disturbing but realistic scenario of the disastrous future that awaits humankind as surplus populations collide with dwindling resources. 1. Introduction. The theoretical literature on natural resources can be divided into two main groups, resource abundancy and resource scarcity. Literatures falling in the first group argue that abundancy of natural resources (non-renewable) leads to violence, inequality and conflict, while those of the second group claims that scarcity (both renewable and non-renewable) of natural Cited by: 4.

Thomas Homer-Dixon's "Environment, Scarcity and Violence" offers a scholarly analysis of the role environmental scarcity plays in spawning violent human conflicts.

He also acknowledges that human ingenuity can reduce the likelihood of conflict, particularly in countries with efficient markets, capable states, and an educated populace.

The Earth's human population is expected to pass eight billion by the yearwhile rapid growth in the global economy will spur ever increasing demands for natural resources. The Environment will consequently face growing scarcities of such vital renewable resources as cropland, fresh water, and forests.

The Environmental Challenges: Scarcity and Conflict in the Natural Environment is an online course that explores war and conflict and their impact on the environment and people.

This course explores the three main aspects of conflict and resource scarcity and help students apply them to the negotiation and decision making. We start by exploring three basic principles, the economics of the coming Spaceship Earth, scarcity in conflict, and the environment as a weapon of war.

These principles will then be applied to a case study, where we consider two different approaches to international relations. ENVIRONMENTAL SCARCITY AND CONFLICT Executive Summary Natural resources and conflict Con˜ict arises when two or more groups believe their interests are incompatible.

Environmental scarcity is never the sole cause of conflict, but it is often an aggravating or contributing factor. Future efforts at conflict prevention and resolution should take the role that environmental scarcity plays into account, and appropriate interventions to prevent demand- supply- and structurally-induced scarcity should be pursued.

between environmental change and conflict, we sought to falsify the null hypothesis that environmental scarcity does not cause violent conflict. By carefully tracing the causal processes in each case, we also sought to identify how environmental scarcity operates, if and when it is a cause of conflict.
