Processes of globalization, which mainly develop spontaneously, without a collective direct influence of the world community, create a number of problems of international and also local security and engender new risks and challenges.

All countries of the particular region are experiences such challenges as migration, conflicts based on different cultural backgrounds, cyber-attacks and other new challenges. One of the main aspects for secure and peaceful future is sustainable development of our planet. How to use resources in sustainable manner? How to ensure sustainable management of energy?
