The aim of this paper is to discuss how conversion and the notion of environmental conflict might interact with each other. It first considers the idea of conversion as supplementary to the concept of arms reductions, after identifying some strategic prerequisites. In the following sections the discussion centres on the ideas of environmental security and environmental conflict, approaching the subject from the perspective of the interaction between states. Finally, the paper explores areas of linkage between the conversion process and environmental conflicts.
