NBR Special Report no. 28
Ecological and Nontraditional Security Challenges in South Asia
In 2009, under the aegis of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation’s Asia Security Initiative, the National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR) launched a three-year initiative to examine opportunities for cooperation on shared nontraditional security concerns as potential building blocks toward developing a viable regional security architecture for South Asia. This NBR Special Report is the first of a series of reports to be published through the course of 2011 drawing on papers prepared for the project’s first phase.
