The aim of the Advanced Research Workshop was to provide preliminary recommendations for education and capacity development in regard to the new security challenges posed by climate change.

In order to perform the aforementioned goal, subject matter experts involved in the workshop evaluated current and envisaged future capability needs by analyzing security environment, and identifying possible domains of civil-military cooperation in the climate change field in the Balkans and South-Eastern Europe.  

The expected outcomes of the ARW are to build partner capacity to enhance interoperability between local, national and regional institutions dealing with environmental security issues through developing an annual course focused on potential climate change impacts on NATO and Partner Nations in the region.
