The Environment and Resources research cluster addresses global governance challenges arising from large-scale environmental and resource stresses, including climate change, food insecurity, declining biodiversity, water shortages, forest loss, fisheries depletion, and energy scarcities. The cluster considers the implications of different ways of defining these challenges as well as the distributional, ethical, and collective-action issues raised by various governance responses.
