In Brief

About the project

Climate change has far-reaching impacts on the Middle East. Experts believe that the region’s future will be dramatically affected by changing climate conditions and extreme weather events, the scarcity of natural resources and ongoing environmental pollution caused by humans. Existing lines of conflict will be further exacerbated by these dynamics. At the same time, conflicts will result in long-term environmental damage, which is already evident in the region. Nevertheless, the effects on the environment and climate often do not play a role in peace work.

This program focuses in particular on local actors and locally-led approaches that tackle the challenges presented with comprehensive and sustainable approaches. The Robert Bosch Stiftung implements the various components of the program together with its partner organization, the Arab Reform Initiative.
