Activities

Coordinates an international research project, based at the University of Oslo (Norway), on ways the United Nations system might participate more effectively in the management and resolution of international environmental conflicts, with special focus on the harmonization of economic burdens and environmental challenges facing developing countries. In order to evaluate the conflict resolution process, the International Environmental Conflict Resolution (IECR) programme develops an analytical framework that focuses on the cross-sectoral nature of environmental problems. The framework incorporates data derived from on-going international negotiations and case studies in five areas identified by UN to be of special importance: land resources (including conflicts regarding environmental refugees); forestry; biodiversity; coastal areas/sea level rise; international river system.
