Climate Change, Central Asia and Security
Central Asia regional consultations on the project "Climate Change and Security in Eastern Europe, Central Asia and Southern Caucasus" will be held in Bishkek. The event brings together representatives from all Central Asian Republics, International organisations and NGOS. Security implications of climate change in Central Asia will be discussed, as well as geographical and sectorial hotspots and priority measures to address the issues. Zoï is supporting the ENVSEC initiative lead by UNDP and the OSCE.
Zoï continues to provide analytical and visual support to global and regional initiatives on water cooperation to the UNECE, SDC, IUCN, UNEP and other international actors. This includes pioneering work on the Water, Energy, Agriculture and Environment Nexus in various transboundary water basins.
International negotiations on a legally binding instrument on mercury are advancing well. The Minamata Convention is expected to enter into force in 2017. Zoï is providing support to UNEP Chemicals by analyzing and visualizing complex issues, with results such as the "Practical Sourcebook on Mercury Waste Storage and Disposal"
Zoï conceptual infographics are featured in the upcoming ‘Atlas of Environmental Migration’, the first and only illustrated book that maps environmental migration, clarifies terminology and concepts, draws a typology of migration related to the environment and climate change, describes the multiple factors at play, explains the challenges, and highlights the opportunities related to this phenomenon. The atlas, produced by the IOM, is launched in Paris on the 5th of December, some of the key graphics are already available on the IOM website:
