The precise impacts of climate change are difficult to predict. In order to be able to react to changes and reduce the vulnerability of populations, adaptation measures have to be well thought-out and well prepared. The development of a range of scenarios can help to identify risks, present possible courses of action and enable preventative adaptation if necessary.
In order to assess the security implications of climate change for the Southern Caucasus, the Organization for Security and Cooperation (OSCE) in Europe and the European Environment Agency (EEA) organised a scenario workshop in Tbilisi, Georgia. Together with CAREC, adelphi provided support to the OSZE in the preparation and hosting of the workshop and in the evaluation of the findings. The workshop was part of a larger project by the OSZE and EEA to analyse the security implications of climate change in all OSCE regions.
