Environmental Security Data Base

The Environmental Security Database contains information on books, journal articles, papers, and newspaper clippings relating to the study of the links between environmental stress and violent conflict in developing countries. Much of the material was gathered over the course of several international research projects coordinated by the Peace and Conflict Studies Program at the University of Toronto. Jane Willms, who has worked in the areas of environment and development since 1983, began assembling the library in 1991. The data base was last updated in December 2001.

The Database includes around 20,000 items, with information from related fields such as ecological sciences, demography, development studies, economics, political science, conflict studies, anthropology, and regional studies. All of the material cited in the Database is housed at University College, University of Toronto, within the Peace and Conflict Studies program.
