To date there are three main groups of issues that are relevant to environmental and security issues in the region.
These are access to and quality if natural resources (primarily water and land but also forest and more generally biodiversity resources), existing or potential pollution from industrial facilities, hazardous and radioactive waste sites; and cross-cutting issues such as natural disasters, climate change, public health, environmental governance, public participation and access to information.
