Trade and Environment Database (TED)

Conceived of by Dr. James R. Lee of American University's School of International Service, this ambitious project seeks "to provide a common basis for researchers and policy makers to understand issues of trade and the environment." The site includes a searchable database of over 450 case studies, organized by region or date. Forty newly-added TED case studies include the "Chilean Forest Preservation and the Project River Condor," the "Shrimp and Turtle" case study (2nd study), and "Non-indigenous Species Threaten the Habitat of Florida's Flora and Fauna," among others. Educators seeking examples of environmental/development conflicts will appreciate the care that has been taken to present several sides of each issue. Of added utility, the site includes several links to related case studies, as well as links to the Inventory of Conflict and Environment (ICE) case studies, which seek to provide "a common basis and method (for) looking at issues of conflict and environment."
