Since ancient times, we have seen both loss of life and property damage as a consequence of wars and conflicts. Wars have also resulted in a variety of environmental problems, such as alteration of the landscape, habitat loss, and chemical and radioactive contamination. This presentation will focus on environmental damage from conflict in Southwest Asia.
