Security has over time been confined to a state’s capability to militarily protect itself. However, with progressive developments in the analysis of security, Buzan et al. have given students of International Relations new platforms to study security. To draw from a global perspective, security has traditionally been viewed as a state is concern in the International System. The settlement of populations in areas other than that of birth is migration. It is this settlement that is a security threat to societies.
International trade continues to be a central area of concern for academicians, policy makers and general citizenry of the world. This activity has been practiced the world over since ancient times and has seen most developments that have happened shaped and driven by the need to prosper in this field.

There has been an upsurge of conflicts between Kenya and Uganda over resources in Lake Victoria, more so due to water as a shared resource. This study therefore intended to establish the root causes of these conflicts, the nexus between the shared resources around the lake and environmental scarcity and the conflicts and the interventions that have been employed in finding a solution to these conflicts. The study was guided by Homer Dixon’s theory of environmental scarcity in order to clearly demonstrate the relationship between environmental scarcity and trans-boundary conflicts.
