"… environmental degradation encourages powerful elites within a society to shift resource distribution in their favor and therefore operate to extend control over productive resources, in a process of “resource capture” and consequently displace peasants and subsistence farmers into ecological marginalization. This unequal resource access may result in the scenario that some ethnic groups will not be able to sustain their basic existence any longer.”
