    Abstract

    In this essay, Dr. Rechkemmer outlines how global governance and UN reform endeavours hold both challenges and opportunities for improving the environment and enhancing human security. In this context, the state of the environment can be defined as a challenge or even a threat for the collective security, while the Millennium Development Goals clearly refer to environmental sustainability as a key component of human security and stability. The author urges us to emphasize the strong links between these two dimensions in the ongoing institutional reform process. He argues that a holistic consideration of the security relevant aspects of environmental problems would not only help to mainstream the environmental concerns into the international political agenda and strengthen the corresponding institutions, but also enhance human security for all.
