Witnessing the Environmental Impacts of War - Environmental case studies from conflict zones around the world
With case studies from Iraq, Syria, Colombia, Yemen, Ukraine, Laos DPR and Senegal, this jointly produced report provides a snapshot of environments impacted by active conflict, post conflict governance gaps, and humanitarian efforts to restore usable lands. The stories tell a tale of the often complex relationship between armed conflict and its environment footprint that lingers long after the guns fell silent.
The publication is a collaborative effort by Amnesty International, the Conflict and Environment Observatory, Environmental Law Institute, the Geneva Water Hub, Global Green Institute, Norwegian People’s Aid, PAX, Universidad Externado de Colombia and the Zoï Environment Network to provide expert evidence of the urgency to mainstream environmental issues in security processes.
