Abstract:

The Millennium Project defines environmental security as environmental viability for life support, with three sub-elements preventing or repairing military damage to the environment, preventing or responding to environmentally caused conflicts, and protecting the environment due to its inherent moral value. This summarizing paper presents the events and emerging environmental security-related issues identified since June 2006, organized around this definition. Over 225 items have been identified during the past half-year and about 950 items since August 2002 when the Millennium Project has began this monthly scanning. All the items and their sources, organized by the month when they were identified, are available on the AEPI web page httpwww.aepi.army.milrpt-weei.html.
