Environmental Security Assessments: Methodologies and Practices, 21-22 November 2010, Brussels

On 21-22 November 2010 the Institute for Environmental Security, in collaboration with UNEP and ENVSEC, organised a workshop on 'Environmental Security Assessments: Methodologies and Practices'.

The meeting brought together experts with experience in designing and carrying out ESAs and policy makers and practitioners with a demonstrated interest in using such assessments. The overall aim was to exchange information and experiences on the various approaches to conducting ESAs and explore ways to improve the use of them in the future. The specific objectives were:

  • To share approaches and experiences among those doing ESAs - which could help strengthen the quality and effectiveness of such assessments.
  • To explore challenges and exchange ideas for improving end-user satisfaction with and utilisation of ESAs.
  • To consider ideas for joint follow-up action by the participating organisations.
