CUSA Director Dr. Richard Matthew has contributed a chapter to The U.S-India Relationship: Cross-Sector Collaboration To Promote Sustainable Development (Edited by Dr. Michael J. Fratantuono, Dr. David M. Sarcone, John Colwell, Jr.). His chapter entitled, “Environment and Security: Transnational Challenges, Transnational Solutions,” provides a very brief overview of the field of environmental security. Most importantly he states his research, “suggests that the analytical lens of environmental security may be usefully applied to South Asia, given the scale of environmental stress the region is experiencing and the quite dire predictions climate scientists have made about its future.”
Overall, the entire publication addresses the increasing need on the part of strategic leaders from all sectors to better understand the factors that contribute to the success of collaborative initiatives, all of which are relevant to the efforts to promote sustainable development in the context of the U.S.-India strategic relationship.
