U.S. Military and Environmental Security in the Gulf Region

"The United States Department of Defense defends the nation’s security interests, which, over the past decade, have become more broadly defined. Today, U.S. forces find themselves employed in a wide range of nontraditional activities, including those that may fall in the category of “environmental security.” In response, the U.S. military has developed programs to encourage cooperation with other nations’ militaries based on environmental security, defined as “an integrated proactive approach that ensures the protection, preservation, and restoration of the environment, including air, land, water, biodiversity, natural resources, and people, from natural and manmade disasters that might contribute to instability and conflict” (Griffard & Butts, 2002)."

Networks of Threat and Vulnerability: Lessons from Environmental Security Research

"Over the last 10 years, environmental security research has brought new ideas to the field of security studies; broadened our understanding of global change, conflict, and vulnerability; and explored the roles of conservation and sustainable development in promoting peace, stability, and human security. Today, another powerful new idea has emerged: national and international security agendas are focusing as much attention on “network-based threats” —terrorism, computer viruses, and epidemic diseases, for example— as on the perennial problem of war. If researchers reorient security studies to systematically investigate these transnational dangers, policymakers might be able to devise effective evidence-based solutions to the growing number of threats that do not follow the traditional state-centered security model."

Preliminary Report of the NATO/CCMS Environmental Security Conference

Environment issues are widely recognized as potential causes for instability and conflict. Recognizing these dangers, NATO’s Committee on the Challenges of Modern Society (CCMS) directed a Pilot Study, “Environment and Security in an International Context,” to analyze the relationship between environmental change and security in an international, regional, and global level. The main goal of the study is to elaborate conclusions and recommendations to enhance environmental aspects in security deliberations, and to include security considerations in national and international environmental policies and instruments.

Environmental Security Planning, Prevention, and Disaster Response in the Arabian Gulf Region

Environmental problems exacerbated by natural or man-made events can contribute to regional instability and conflict. Such disasters hinder economic progress, displace populations, and facilitate the growth of undesirable elements and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. Failure to respond to these events in a coordinated, timely and effective manner impacts a government’s legitimacy and its ability to govern and function. For these reasons environmental security initiatives are key security cooperation vehicles for the United States Central Command (USCENTCOM). Two Central Asia conferences established the relationships that allowed access to the bases required to fight the war against terrorism. In the Arabian Gulf region environmental security efforts complement USCENTCOM’s Cooperative Defense Initiative (CDI) activities and offer a valuable venue for broadening regional security cooperation.
