The Environment as a Source of Conflict

Human Rights & Business Roundtable
September 2013
Environmental concerns have gained significant attention. Companies, governments and communities are doing more than ever before to try to protect the environment. Unfortunately, fears, misinformation, accidents, poor actors, and poor communications can still lead environmental issues to become a source of conflict, even violent conflict. This Roundtable will examine past case studies and explore how things can be done and communicated differently to mitigate the potential for conflict.
