Natural resources such as water, soil and biodiversity are under increasing stress. Human activity is the main cause of this global crisis affecting everybody, but most particularly the vulnerable groups of our societies. The Paris Agreement and the Global Agenda 2030, among other legal instruments, are a testimony to the increasing awareness of governments and other international actors that environmental issues should be an integral part of addressing larger global challenges. However, with the current COVID-19 health crisis there is a risk of a weakened focus on the environment and security nexus. This is why decision makers need an understanding of the environment-security nexus including the health-environment link in order to keep it high on the agenda. They increasingly need tools to come up with and implement new solutions and use different aspects of environmental cooperation as an instrument for peace and security.
