Climate Change and Human Security Virtual Library
The Climate Change and Human Security Virtual Library is an information network for literature and policies regarding environmental conflict prevention and transformation. IMTD's current climate change resilience efforts focus on Lake Angostura and Lake Titicaca, where environmental degradation poses significant human security risks to local communities. The CCHS Virtual Library provides practitioners, scholars, and researchers with access to a collection of documents crucial for problem identification and solution development in the context of environmental peacebuilding.
The Library is broken into three primary categories: Models of Peacebuilding, Climate Change and Human Security in Practice, and CCHS Research and Publications.
The Library is broken into three primary categories: Models of Peacebuilding, Climate Change and Human Security in Practice, and the CCHS Program Materials: Mission and Products of Research.
Models of Peacebuilding includes literature that is the foundation of our methodological framework, focusing on citizen diplomacy, citizen science, science diplomacy, and environmental diplomacy articles that are applicable to Lake Titicaca.
Climate Change and Human Security in Practice is a catalog of other vital efforts to monitor and protect Lake Titicaca as well as a running feed of news related to international climate change, Lake Titicaca, and the Cochabamba water crisis. This category serves to contextualize the Titicaca problem space, highlight vital actors, and inform future efforts.
CCHS Research and Publications includes several annotated bibliographies that expand on topics relevant to Lake Titicaca, such as water management, citizen science, and stakeholder inclusion.
