Water Diplomacy and the Water-Energy Nexus

Date / Time

October 8, 2019

5:00 pm - 6:15 pm

Gidon Bromberg is the co-founder and Israeli Director of EcoPeace Middle East, the only regional organization that brings together and works with Jordanian, Palestinian and Israeli environmentalists. Their main goal is “the promotion of cooperative efforts to protect our shared environmental heritage,” that furthers sustainable development and fosters peace in the region.

Ecopeace Middle East’s Water-Energy Nexus Project aims at researching and advocating for a Water and Sustainable Energy Nexus approach to counter the effects of climate change and its potential negative security implications, while providing solutions to water scarcity in the region. The project includes researching the technical, economic, and geo-political pre-feasibility of Jordan as a provider of large-scale renewable energy for the Levant with the coastal region of Israel and Gaza producing the desalinated water.

Co-sponsored with Freshwater Lab at UIC.
