Biodiversity and Ecosystem Insecurity- A Planet in Peril - edited by Ahmed Djoghlaf and Felix Dodds is the third in a series covering environmental security. The first Human and Environmental security edited by Felix Dodds and Tim Pippard (2005) and the second Climate and Energy Insecurity edited by Felix Dodds, Andrew Higham and Richard Sherman (2009) attempts to iutline the increasing links between environment and security that have become clearer since the World Summit on Sustainabke Development in 2002. The lack of implementation of the Rio and the Johannesburg agreements have made the world a more dangerous and less equitable place.
The latest book has contibutions from Bob Watson, Thomas Lovejoy, Achim Steiner, Pavan Sukhdev, Monique Barbut and Johan Rockstrom.
