Abstract: The relationship between environment and security has been under consideration since the 1980s mainly by two groups: 1. The environmental policy community, addressing the security implication of environmental change and security, and 2. The security community, looking at new definitions of national security, particularly in the post-cold war era. It was soon acknowledged that global impacts of for example environmental change, the depletion of the ozone layer and transboundary pollution, have clear security implications. This in turn made the military authorities to re-evaluate the security dimensions of environmental issues. Security was traditionally seen as a synonym for national security with two main objectives: 1. To preserve the territorial integrity of the state and 2. To maintain the preferred from the government, by political and military means. When political scientists took up the environmental aspects of security, they defined environment impacts as being part of the security issue. This approach attempted to re-define the concept of national security completely. In the early 1980s the Independent Commission on Security and Disarmament Issue (ICSDI) developed and introduced the concept of common security, giving the idea of national security a broader perspective. Additional to the traditional security aspects, other non-traditional threats to security , e.g. economic decline, social and political instability, ethnic rivalries and traditional dispute, international terrorism, money laundering and drug trafficking as well as environmental stress, have been incorporated. In recent years environmental security has been understood extensively, included human, physical, social and economic well being, giving the scope hardly any limitation for interpretations. At present, however, there is no consensus on a clear definition of environmental security. For the purpose of this paper, the scope of the issue is limited on how environmental impacts may affect conflicts, rather than security as such. In this respect, environmental security has basically a main dimensions: environmental stress may be a cause as well as a result of a conflict
