Natural resources have re-emerged as a key element in conflict risk. The three main contemporary perspectives on the role of resources in the onset, duration and termination of conflicts address economic theories of violence, environmental factors approaches—particularly looking at climate change—and resource geopolitics. The international community has responded to increased awareness of the links between natural resource issues and conflict with diverse initiatives, notably strengthening international resource trade regulation. While challenging, there is a need to build comprehensive global resource governance frameworks as a means to weaken and eventually break the links between resources and conflict
