2019 MENA Academy on Climate Diplomacy
Deadline: July 11, 2019.
In its efforts to foster dialogue and collaborations among the various stakeholders involved in climate change adaptation and mitigation, the Regional Program Energy Security and Climate Change Middle East and North Africa of Konrad-Adenauer Stiftung (KAS – REMENA) and MEDRC Water Research organize jointly the Middle East and North Africa Academy on Climate Diplomacy, from October 28 to November 03, 2019, Berlin – Germany.
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our era. Increasing water scarcity on the one hand, more flooding and extreme weather events on the other hand threaten millions of livelihoods across the world. This development can lead to more migration or trigger violent conflicts as witnessed in the Middle East in the past years. Therefore, there is an urgent need for action on multiple levels, especially cross-governmental collaboration which has the potential of mitigating climate change through countries’ commitment to their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and to international climate policy.
They invite interested MENA and Turkish young researchers, policy makers, and civil society activists, who are nationals of any MENA countries or Turkey to apply.
