Organization description: The Environment and Security Initiative was established in 2003 by OSCE, UNDP, and UNEP. In 2004, NATO became an associated member of the Initiative, and since then coordinates with ENVSEC its environmental activities that are aiming at enhancing the security in vulnerable regions, and supports selected ENVSEC projects that are in line with NATO’s geographical and thematic priorities. From 2006 inwards the Initiative is strengthened by two new members – UNECE and REC.

ENVSEC works in four focus areas, i.e. natural resources, hazardous substances, climate change and information and participation, which are further elaborated at the regional work programmes.
