Abstract:

In coming decades, population shifts and resource pressures are more likely to exacerbate existing political conflicts rather than to directly trigger them. The balance between population, resources, and the environment is likely to improve in the next 20 years as a result of decreasing population growth rates and increasing attention to environmentally sustainable development. Tensions will persist, particularly over transborder resources such as rivers that flow between countries. One issue likely to involve the U.S. military more and more is mass movements of refugees.
