Title

Environment and Security Initiative (EnvSec)

Description/Definition

The Environment and Security Initiative (EnvSec) is a collaborative effort of UNDP, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and in association with the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) through its Public Diplomacy Division. It is designed to address environmental threats by promoting better management of resources as a strategy for enhancing cooperation and reducing tensions. Ongoing disputes and disagreements over the management of natural resources shared by two or more states, can deepen divides and lead to hostilities. But common problems regarding the use of natural resources may also bring people together in a positive way. Communities and different nations can build confidence with each other by joint efforts to improve the state and management of nature. Environmental co-operation can thereby act as an important means for preventing conflicts and promoting peace between communities.
