Abstract. The evolution of cooperation and communication in commu-
nities of individuals is a puzzling problem for a wide range of scientific
disciplines, ranging from evolutionary theory to the theory and appli-
cation of multi-agent systems. A key issue is to understand the factors
that affect collaboration and communication evolution. To address this
problem, here we choose the environmental risk as a compact descriptor
of the environment in a model world of simple agents. We analyse the
evolution of cooperation and communication as a function of the envi-
ronmental risk. Our findings show that collaboration is more likely to rise
