However, our wisdom of the “real” workings of environmental cooperation in clash zones doesn't correspond with the recognition of those techniques and activities. even if environmental cooperation has been initiated in lots of clash components, the diversities in person situations are so huge that, up to now, there's neither exact information nor any proposal of the workings of environmental cooperation as a device for clash transformation.

It concludes that now not all environmental cooperation is actual cooperation and never all actual cooperation is favorable. The scope, shape, and content material of cooperation are very important to the peacebuilding strength of environmental cooperation, and there are a number of intervening elements similar to motivation of actors, their worth personal tastes, and length of the help of exterior actors.
