The purpose of this collected volume of essays is to build on and contribute to the larger conceptual literature on environment and security. In particular, the book seeks to fill one of the glaring gaps within this stream of scholarship— the inadequate number of existing case studies for South Asia and its component territories. Written entirely by the leading scholars from South Asia, the book examines a region that is the setting for some of the most important environmental security challenges of our time.
