Climate change can impact security in a number of ways. The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) raises awareness, facilitates the identification and mapping of potential security risks stemming from climate change, and helps in addressing these risks through participatory approaches. The Office of the Co-ordinator of OSCE Economic and Environmental Activities (OCEEA), in partnership with adelphi, has embarked in 2021 on a bilateral consultation process on climate change and security between Armenia and Georgia involving stakeholders from governmental bodies, civil society organizations, and academia. This report presents the results of this consultation process with a focus on co-operation opportunities to address the security implications of climate change.
