The Middle East is a global climate hotspot- a Middle East summer is expected to heat up an astounding 40% more than the annual world average. At this rate, without intervention, agriculture will become impossible, and the region could become uninhabitable by the end of the century. Regional cooperation has a critical role in confronting the climate crisis. This programs also shares how the Arava Institute – comprised of Israelis, Palestinians, and Jordanians- not only has the technology to address energy poverty and water scarcity, but also has the peacebuilding tools to bring solutions to the region’s most vulnerable.
This event is co-sponsored by the Israel Committee and the Dayenu Circle.
