UC Irvine News Brief: New CUSA book

“Global Environmental Change & Human Security,” recently published by the MIT Press, features content and editing by several UC Irvine scholars. The book examines the complex social, health and economic consequences of water and air pollution; loss of forest cover; depletion of fish stocks; land, coastal and marine degradation; climate change; and rising sea levels. It notes that these factors raise unavoidable questions about human insecurity, conflict, cooperation and sustainable development. Editors include Richard Matthew and Bryan McDonald, director and assistant director of UCI’s Center for Unconventional Security Affairs. Among the contributors are Victoria Basolo, associate professor of planning, policy & design, and Heather Goldsworthy, doctoral candidate in planning, policy & design.
