The United Na­tions En­vi­ron­ment Pro­gram (UNEP) signed a co­op­er­a­tion agree­ment with the Mu­nich Con­fer­ence. The doc­u­ment will al­low for a look at the is­sues of en­sur­ing se­cu­rity tak­ing into ac­count the eco­log­i­cal com­po­nent.

Ac­cord­ing to UNEP re­gional co­or­di­na­tor Mahir Aliyev, the en­vi­ron­ment is sub­ject to neg­a­tive in­flu­ence from hos­til­i­ties, but at the same time it can pro­voke con­flicts. Thus, it is ex­pected that there will be an op­por­tu­nity to make new data on co­op­er­a­tion with the Mu­nich Con­fer­ence and ex­plain to the world com­mu­nity at the high­est po­lit­i­cal level about the re­la­tion­ship that ex­ists be­tween en­vi­ron­ment and se­cu­rity.

With cli­mate change, the pop­u­la­tion in dif­fer­ent parts of the globe will no longer be able to live there and will have to look for more ac­cept­able con­di­tions for them­selves. At the same time, such is­sues as ‘cli­mate mi­gra­tion’, col­li­sion of new­com­ers with lo­cal ones will in­evitably arise, which will lead to a num­ber of con­se­quences that di­rectly af­fect se­cu­rity: from the is­sue of wa­ter re­sources to the ex­haus­tion and di­ver­sity of agri­cul­tural op­por­tu­ni­ties. One way or another, in an enor­mous num­ber of con­tem­po­rary con­flicts, the eco­log­i­cal com­po­nent is there.
