New OSCE Study examines the impacts of climate change on peace and security

adelphi, Chatham House and CIMERA prepared a research study on the possible risks and impacts of climate change that are destabilising the effects of peace and security in four OSCE regions.


If the ramifications become destructive in the next few years, the development of preventive strategies and solutions will have a special significance. Achim Maas, a Project Manager at adelphi, presented the results of the study at the annual OSCE employee meeting, held in Vienna, 3 February. The study will serve as an input paper for developing scenarios that can be used in the OSCE regions, thereby providing a basis to establish concrete measures that avoid conflict. The study is scheduled to be published in late February/early March 2010.
