Environment and Security in Eastern Europe

A report on environment and security in Eastern Europe was launched on May 21st, 2007 at the OSCE Economic and Environmental Forum in Prague. What does it have to do with MESPOM? Well, as the lead author I had to apportion my time between this exciting work and equally exciting MESPOM coordination for the last year. Others from the MESPOM community - Ruben and Alexious from CEU as well as Mykhaylo (a MESPOM Scholar 2006) - were involved as well as five CEU alumni and two IIIEE alumni. May be some of you will find it interesting too.

The Eastern Europe assessment report produced on behalf of a partnership of international organizations (UNDP, UNEP, UNECE, OSCE, NATO and REC) examines the links between environment and security in Belarus, Moldova and Ukraine and proposes actions for strengthening security through environmental cooperation and mitigating environmental impacts of security policies and measures.
