YATA Georgia’s volunteers at the spring session of NATO Parlaimentary Assembly

On May 26-29 of 2017 spring session of NATO Parliamentary Assembly was held in Tbilisi, Georgia. Volunteers of the Youth Atlantic Treaty Association of Georgia (YATA Georgia) actively contributed to organizing the session.




On November 25-28th The Atlantic Treaty Association and the Atlantic Council of #Georgia will host a NATO Advanced Research Workshop on critical infrastructure protection, in Tbilisi, Georgia. The ARW is financed by NATO SPS Programme with the aim of providing high-level discussions and information sharing, in order to find solutions for today’s emerging #energy #security challenges. The workshop will feature panels on the role of international organizations, public and private stakeholders in energy security; #terrorism and its implications for energy #infrastructure security and #cyber threats to critical energy infrastructures.

Experts are to discuss a wide range of threats and risks that can compromise energy infrastructure networks, such as terrorist attacks and cyber threats. These risks affect both NATO Allies and partners alike, since countries are often connected by energy infrastructure networks that are of crucial importance for our energy supply.

To highlight the lasting impacts of an attack on energy infrastructure, the workshop will provide the participants with a case study: Trans-Adriatic Pipeline (TAP), widely valued as an important contribution to diversify European energy supply as it represents the most direct connection for transportation of natural gas from the Caspian Sea to European markets. The case study provides a valuable opportunity for collaborative efforts between NATO and Partner countries to enable the stable flow of energy resources. The workshop furthermore aims to generate numerous ideas and best practices in enhancing prevention and resilience in this field in order to collect and present concrete recommendations.
