This report – commissioned by the the Office of the OSCE Co-ordinator of Economic and Environmental Activities (OCEEA) in the context of a project focused on the security implications of climate change – is a scoping study on potential security implications of climate change. It has four main aims:
• Reviewing the state of the debate in current research on climate change and security. In addition, assessing the role of scenarios in policy planning and identifying the characteristics of scenarios related to climate change and security.
• Identifying potential security implications of climate change in several regions within or adjacent to the OSCE – in particular the Arctic, the Southern Mediterranean, South East and Eastern Europe, the South Caucasus and Central Asia.
• Assessing the activities conducted by countries and international organisations – particularly the UN and OSCE member states – with regard to climate change and security.
• Outlining initial recommendations to the OSCE on addressing the potential security implications of climate change.
