Middle East Institute
In recognition of Earth Day on April 22, The Middle East Institute (MEI) is pleased to announce a week of special programming to highlight the expanse of impacts climate change has had in the Middle East. Exacerbating conflicts, displacement, and food and water security, the already dire climate crisis in the Middle East is approaching a critical point. What are the emerging initiatives across industries and geopolitical fault lines to prevent further insecurity and loss of life? How can cooperation across the region facilitate a more sustainable approach to green energy, economic development, agriculture, and governance?
To address these challenges and more, MEI will bring together leading experts and advocates in the climate world in a series of panels, roundtable discussions, and interviews. Please register using the links below, and stay tuned for further updates to this program.
