10th Anniversary Open House and ECSP Report Launch

January 25, 2005 // 3:00pm5:00pm

Since its founding in 1994, the Woodrow Wilson Center's Environmental Change & Security Project has brought together the worlds of environment, population, and health with those of foreign and security policy, bridging the chasm between academic theorizing and practical policymaking. At more than 50 events a year Beltway insiders quiz big thinkers and professors and practitioners meet political players. UN Environment Programme Executive Director Klaus Toepfer recently called ECSP the "leading institute for environmental security in the United States."

With our annual Environmental Change & Security Project Report we take these debates to classrooms, government ministries, NGOs in the field, board rooms, and research institutes around the world. Join us to launch our 10th anniversary issue of the ECSP Report, the journal designed to shatter the disciplinary boundaries separating environment, population, health, and security.

In the 10th anniversary edition of the Report:

  • Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jared Diamond concludes that solving population, environment, and health problems is a cheap way to prevent conflict;
  • Top thinkers formulate an agenda for the next ten years of environment, population, and security;
  • Experts outline recommendations to the UN Secretary-General's High-Level Panel on Threats, Challenges, and Change;
  • Sahlu Haile reports from Ethiopia on population, development, and environment; and
  • We introduce a new column highlighting online population data sources—"dotPop."

ECSP marked the launch of ECSP Report 10 with a reception, featuring a photography exhibit by David Owen Hawxhurst.

Event Speakers List: 
  • Geoffrey D. Dabelko // Senior Advisor, Environmental Change and Security Program
    Professor and Director of Environmental Studies, Ohio University; Former ECSP Director
