Regional co-operation on climate change and security – insights from South-Eastern Europe, South Caucasus and Central Asia

When: 11 October, 15:25 – 16:25

Format: Roundtable discussion

Venue: Plenary session  

Since 2020, the OSCE and adelphi have been conducting regional consultations on climate change and security in South-Eastern Europe, the South Caucasus and Central Asia. These important dialogues part of the project “Strengthening Responses to Security Risks from Climate Change in South-Eastern Europe, Eastern Europe, the South Caucasus and Central Asia”, have involved over 200 stakeholders so far and serve to develop joint adaptation and co-operation strategies and implementation plans in selected hotspots in the project regions. Based on these plans, over the coming years several pilot projects will implement small-scale activities in partnership with local stakeholders on the ground to reduce climate-related security risks.
In this roundtable, we will convene regional representatives from the project and share insights and learnings on how to convert ambition to action. The interactive session will also give the audience the opportunity to engage in the discussion.
