Biodiversity challenges are not unique for any single country, the unique nature of the South Caucasus knows no borders. Governments, authorities, universities and other training institutions benefit when they share their knowledge and experience not just within their country but across the region. The programme fosters this regional exchange in the South Caucasus.

Exchange and dialogue are taking place between decision makers and experts in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia on urgent environmental issues of cross-border significance, such as the sustainable management of ecosystem services. But apart from that, the exchange also provides an important opportunity to learn from each other.

To improve the exchange among professionals, a systematic expert dialogue is established between specialists from the three countries, including ministries, universities, and NGOs. For example, ECOserve actively supports the Caucasus Mountain Forum (https://caucasus-mt.net/ ) which is held to ensure the sustainability of scientific cooperation and exchange, as well as to maintain a regular dialogue.
