MENA Workshop on Water Security & Environmental Peacebuilding

Climate change and its disruptive impact on water resources is increasingly recognised as a threat multiplier that exacerbates conflict in areas around the world. The workshop will gather practitioners from the MENA region to discuss the role that civil society can play in fostering environmental cooperation and increasing the resilience of their communities vis-à-vis climate change and conflict.

Offered by the Regional Program Energy Security and Climate Change Middle East and North Africa of Konrad-Adenauer Stiftung (KAS – REMENA) and the Program on Water Security of EcoPeace Middle East, the workshop will create opportunities for an exchange of experiences and capacity building – providing tools, technical advice and training to support strategic planning, political advocacy and grassroots activities.

Participants in the workshop will be able to gain a deeper understanding of the complexities and best practices of water diplomacy and environmental peacebuilding with a special focus on fostering dialogue and cooperation on the protection, equitable and sustainable use of water and environmental resources.
