The Impact Of Environmental Degradation On Security: A Case Study Of Mau Forest
Environmental degradation is progressively a security problem. The increase of environmental degradation has led to the escalation of structural and violent conflict. In this regard, Mau forest has undergone serious destruction as a result of growing population. It is therefore for this part of research which will examine implications of environmental degradation as a result of vulnerability to scarce resources, security as well as violent conflict. It is also important to interrogate the mandate of a legitimate government in protection of human life, properties and environment. The implication here is that if a government does not put proper mechanism and policies to curb environment degradation, this will threaten and undermine prosperity of the future generation. Services of security agencies can be diverted to offer humanitarian activities. Environmental degradation has both direct and indirect consequences based on security hence increases propagation of structural violence as well as violent conflict. This research paper focuses on the implications of destruction of Mau complex and carryout an empirical research into the dangers and threats of its destruction and in the long run, transforms human security and conflict into peace and peace building.
