Environmental security and environmental peacemaking may offer one avenue towards building sustainable prosperity in war-torn areas. The excellent Environmental Change and Security Program has posted a set of story ideas for journalists. The titles alone are worth mulling over:
What lies at the roots of Nepals deadly Maoist insurgency? [answer: population, deforestation]
Do peace parks live up to their name? [intriguing, but not an easy fix]
Can the U.S. military build peace by encouraging environmental cooperation? [sure as shootin']
How do population dynamics affect conflict? [think youth bulge]
Not just journalism, Alex - history too.
