Carius et al.

Following theoretical studies on definition and categorization approaches, Carius et al. published in 2006 the "World Map of Environmental Conflicts", in which a larger number of case studies were examined for the first time. For this purpose, empirical data of conflicts were analyzed and systematically recorded in a database. Although no dominating types could be identified on a global scale, different regional environmental conflict types could be identified. The results of this study were also published in the WBGU flagship report "World in Transition: Climate Change as a Security Risk". The authors of the study point out that the number of conflicts studied is too low to provide a significant typology - most of the known environmental conflicts have not yet been scientifically studied.
