Description: Based on the existing institutional structure and the partnership arrangements of the Aarhus Centres, this project aimed to further intensify the work of Aarhus Centres on priority environmental issues that have security implications in respective countries. This was achieved through two separate but parallel approaches: (i) organizing targeted trainings and other capacity building activities for the Aarhus Centre staff and their stakeholders on the priority environmental and security issues; and (ii) facilitating active involvement and participation of Aarhus Centres and their constituencies in local and national environmental projects and programmes, particularly those under the ENVSEC Initiative, to complement and/or support the public awareness and public participation components of such larger scale projects and programmes. The project also continued to support networking and information sharing among the Aarhus Centres at the regional level.
