A Water-Energy Nexus for the Middle East - Foundation Office Palestinian Territories
EcoPeace Co-Director Nada Majdalani highlighted in her presentation the potential security risks for the whole region that could result from its growing demand for energy and water. Thinking about regional cooperation in these crucial fields is therefore not only a game of thoughts, but should be understood as an integral part of the national self interest of all countries in the region. A regional Water-Energy Nexus would offer an economically sound response to these security risks and at the same time create additional opportunities and incentives for regional cooperation.
EcoPeace Co-Director Gidon Bromberg concluded the insightful discussion by extending his gratitude to KAS for its continuous support for an out-of-the-box project that leaves longstanding tensions aside in favor of an ambitious step towards cooperation: "we are grateful to the KAS and to your leadership to bring this change to the ground to Berlin but more importantly to our people in the region."
