"Security Implications of Climate Change" is a project aimed at developing scenarios for different OSCE regions in order to assess the impact of climate change on natural resources, energy and food availability, and their repercussions on security.
These scenarios will provide a tool for co-operative action and policy recommendations that can, for instance, be implemented by the OSCE field operations or that can be elevated to the Permanent Council.
The main partner of this project is the European Environment Agency, which provides environmental data and has a specialized department on scenarios and forward looking studies.
The first scenario workshop took place in Lviv on 15-16 February 2011. Two further workshops were held in Belgrade and Dushanbe in October and November respectively. The concluding scenario workshop for the South Caucasus took place in Tbilisi on 28-30 November 2012.
The project has received contributions from Spain, Finland (through the ENVSEC initiative) and Germany.
