In this post-Cold War period, true security has less to do with how many tanks or soldiers a country can marshall, and more with how well it protects its arable lands and watersheds and how well it manages to meet people's social and economic needs. |Military means are often irrelevant or counter-productive in this new security equation: they are a depreciating asset. Instead, the military budgets that have carried over from the Cold War need to be turned towards the broad challenge of sustainable development: investing in education, health care, family planning, reforestation and soil stabilisation. Fighting for Survival sketches the shape of a new balance in security investments, one that de-emphasises military means and territorial security and accentuates the social, economic and environmental underpinnings of security.
