Supporting cooperation on climate policy
Over the next three years, Zoi will assist the Directorate-General of Climate Action (DG Clima) of EU in analysing national climate policies in Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia. Possible entry points for EU’s climate policy and climate dialogue in 12 countries in the EECCA region will be identified. Zoi will use its accumulated climate and environmental intelligence of the eastern region, complemented by further background research, targeted country missions, and frequent dialogue with DG Clima and other EU institutions.
Mapping climate change and security
Zoï is working on maps which illustrate the links between climate change and security. The frame is a region-wide study by the ENVSEC initiative. Migration is one of the key themes (this map concerns Central Asia).
Adapting to climate change in river basins
Recently published materials from the Dniester basin are accessible in the "Publications" section of our website.
Zoï also takes part in other activities concerning evironment and security in river basins: in the Neman basin (between Lithuania, Belarus and Russia) and the Chu between Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan.
Zoï Environment Network, GAIA Consulting Oy and the University of Eastern Finland prepared a masterclass on Environmental security, mining and good governance. It was held in Kyrgyzstan at the end of February.
