Abstract

Environmental harm and crime have become an increasingly critical issue, of which every single person, organisation, state and global community as a whole should be aware. A great number of threats stemming from environmental problems are challenging humanity’s security today. As a starting point, take just two examples that illustrate how environmental harm and crime threaten the living entities on Earth.
