The Role of Natural Resource Management in Reducing the Risk of Conflict Recurrence
Six risk factors are relevant for understanding how natural resource management might affect conflict recurrence risk: (1) natural resource dependence; (2) environmental change and natural resource scarcity; (3) poverty and low or declining economic growth; (4) intergroup inequalities; (5) youth bulges; and (6) crime. Such risk can be reduced through effective institutional interventions, such resource-sharing agreements monitored by third parties, strengthening of land tenure and resource access rights, and adaptive management.
