Krampe, F. 2017. “Toward Sustainable Peace: A New Research Agenda for Post-Conflict Natural Resource Management” In Global Environmental Politics 17 (4): 1–8.
The paper provides an overview of environmental peacebuilding and the risks and opportunities that natural resources management implies in post-conflict realities. The author presents two perspectives to environmental peacebuilding -the Cooperation Perspective and the Resource Risk Perspective- looking at both intrastate and interstate conflicts where natural resource management has had an impact on development, human wellbeing, inequality and stability. This text assesses the potential for environmental cooperation in long-term peacebuilding and natural resources conservation and asserts the need for a new peacebuilding approach that acknowledges the complexity of post-conflict realities and incorporates the principles of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
