Abstract
Sustainable development requires a deep understanding of peace and security that is centred on human beings. It includes a gender perspective of equality and equity, embedded in environmental concerns. This human, gender and environmental peace and security (Oswald Spring 2009; see book PAHSEP 18) – ‘HUGE’ – effort should be undertaken by millions of organised citizens, who seek a balance among humans and the natural environment for the benefit of future generations. A significant contribution to this goal of building a sustainable culture of peace is the Earth Charter (2000), which integrates concerns for a peaceful and sustainable future world. Such actions are orientated towards mitigation of the present environmental destruction by creating synergies for an engendered and sustainable peace-building (Chap. 6) that might be able to strengthen the long-standing and former more harmonious relationship between humankind and nature.

I am going to advance three theses. Of course, the truth or falsity of the theses cannot be evaluated without knowing the meanings of the words that compose them. I am going to devote myself mainly to explaining what the theses mean, that is to say to explain the concepts that compose them.

International negotiations on climate change, along with recent upsurges in migration across the Mediterranean Sea, have highlighted the need to better understand the possible effects of climate change on human migration—in particular, across national borders. Here we examine how, in the recent past (2000–2014), weather variations in 103 source countries translated into asylum applications to the European Union, which averaged 351,000 per year in our sample. We find that temperatures that deviat...

Conflict over scarce resources, such as minerals, fish, water, and particularly territory, is a traditional source of armed struggle. Recently, wide-ranging claims have been made to the effect that environmental degradation will increase resource scarcity and therefore contribute to an increase in armed conflict. So far, there has been much controversy and little relevant systematic study of this phenomenon. Most scholarship on the relationship between resources, the environment, and armed confl...

A seemingly non-stop series of disasters has shown that societies worldwide seem unprepared for the threats posed by natural hazards. The tragic impacts of these events drew short-term attention from policy makers, the media and the general public, but their response was too late to prevent serious harm. Societies need to measure their vulnerabilities in advance, and make adequate provisions. This publication presents a broad range of current approaches to measuring vulnerability and contains co...
