How do we define ES?

It is an evolving definition, but here are some ideas we are considering:

  • ES is protection of (critical) environmental assets
  • ES relates to terrorism, degradation, managing risks and remediation, cultural assets
  • ES is protection of elements against risk of contamination or acts of terror
  • Important to consider the integrity of assets

What are we doing?

As a joint initiative between the Center for Global Resilience and Security (CGRS) and the Norwich University Peace and War Center (PAWC), center directors Tara Kulkarni and Travis Morris presented in an environmental security session the 2018 Association of Environmental Health and Science Foundation (AEHS) 34th Annual International Conference on Soils, Sediments, Water and Energy, at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Students Mallory Dutil and Evan Bowley also presented posters, and along with Andrew Jumper engaged in a dinner conversation on environmental security with conference attendees. The dinner, facilitated by Paul Kostecki of AEHS, and led by Morris and Kulkarni, raised questions on topics ranging from the definition of environmental security, to who’s working in this area, to next steps in mainstreaming this important subject area.
