Wilson Center Reports on the Americas No. 4: Environment and Security in the Amazon Basin

In collaboration with the Environmental Change and Security Project , the Latin American Program hosted a series of three conferences during the Spring of 2000 that brought together select groups of experts and policymakers to discuss issues such as: environmental and sustainable initiatives in the Amazon Basin; the roles of local, national, and international actors; Brazil's national security agenda in relation to the Amazon Basin; and the rising threat of international drug trafficking.  This volume is a compilation of papers presented at these conferences.  Its aim is to provide insights into the complex and politically delicate security and environmental questions at stake in the Amazon Basin.To download a PDF of this publication, access the Brazil Institute page for this publication here.
