  III. The Economic Risks of Water Scarcity. In , the World Economic Forum elevated water scarcity to a Top 5 global economic risk. According to World Bank Group (“WBG”), “[w]ater is a vital factor of production, so diminishing water supplies can translate into slower growth.   Main research interests: resource scarcity, conflicts, pastoral economy, pastoral sedentarization, social institutions, resource economics, poverty and climate change.

the world today, but especially in the less developed states. Over 90 percent of the expected population growth will take place in developing countries, in which the ma-jority of the population is often dependent on local renewable resources like crop-land, forests and fresh water supplies (Homer-Dixon and Blitt ). And this is.   In Steven Pinker’s brilliant new book The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined, he demonstrates that peace has actually increased over the course of human history, even over the past few centuries, and particularly the last few decades. In this excerpt, Pinker discusses the myth that resource scarcity increases violent conflict, and that climate change could contribute to.

Drawing from his new Princeton University Press book States, Scarcity, and Civil Strife in the Developing World, Kahl—also a Council on Foreign Relations International Affairs Fellow at the Department of Defense—attempted to answer this question by examining how demographic and environmental factors can create turmoil in many.

In addition, there does not seem to be any clear link between resource scarcity in the Sahel in the s and global climate change.

The Earth's human population is expected to pass eight billion by the yearwhile rapid growth in the global economy will spur ever increasing demands for natural resources.

The world will consequently face growing scarcities of such vital renewable resources as cropland, fresh water, and forests. Thomas Homer-Dixon argues in this sobering book that these environmental scarcities will.WATER RESOURCE SCARCITY AND CONFLICT determines civil conflict.
