This book mainly discusses the investigations that have been carried out on how resource scarcity and environmental degradation motivate international cooperation. Minerals, fisheries, oil, and freshwater resources, which are more prone to be scarce, conflict and may lead to the “resource wars” that have been explored throughout the book. Detailed discussions on climate change, acid rain, global warming, ozone depletion, and various important protocols have played a major role in understanding the book’s core theme. The chapters also focus on political asymmetries, which are very important for the country’s bargaining power in negotiation and the emergence of cooperation. The main purpose of the book is to emphasize that it is interstate coordination and negotiation, and not interstate wars, which will reap the economic benefits.

Keywords:   resource scarcity, environmental degradation, international cooperation, fisheries, political asymmetries
