May 2008 TRINet Newsletter
This month’s newsletter focuses on the issue of environmental security. Though earlier considered a component of human security, it is now being looked at on its own. The issues that need to be considered include shelter security and livelihood security, amongst others. Environmental security becomes of great importance especially for those directly dependent on the environment for their livelihood, including fishers and farmers and here access to resources can become crucial to their well being.
In this newsletter are included some recent publications which I hope will be of interest to you. The latest update from the government, news snippets about activities on the coast as well as about tsunami rehab in India are included as usual.
