Presider Paul B. StaresGen. John W. Vessey Senior Fellow for Conflict Prevention; Director, Center for Preventive Action, Council on Foreign Relations

Concerns are increasing about the consequences of global climate change, rising consumption rates, and population growth on the availability of natural resources, including water, land, forests, oil, gas, and a variety of minerals. In the face of scarcity, are we likely to see a rise in violent conflict over valuable resources? Or is the probability of 'resource wars' much less than feared? Join our speakers to discuss these issues at a meeting cosponsored with the Council’s Center for Preventive Action.
