The European Office of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung and EcoPeace Middle East invite you to the presentation of the Green Blue Deal in the Middle East as an unofficial event in the framework of the COP26, currently taking place in Glasgow. In December 2020, EcoPeace Middle East, the only transnational organisation that brings together Jordanian, Palestinian and Israeli environmentalists, launched its report “The Green Blue Deal for the Middle East”.

Further, it proposes a framework of interdependencies in the Middle East to utilize climate change as an opportunity for creating cooperation in the region. EcoPeace’s policy strategies do not only contribute to resource security, sustainable regional development and cooperation in the Middle East, but also include a security policy dimension in the conflict-laden region.

The European Green Deal’s external action will have a decisive impact on global climate policy. One year after the launch of Europe’s Green Deal, many questions remain open: How can the European Union meet its aspiration to be a global leader in climate action and how can the Green Deal diplomacy contribute to the global effort to stop climate change? How can the EU promote integrated climate change adaption and peacebuilding measures? How can the Middle East be supported in developing and implementing this ambitious strategy?

These and other questions will be discussed at our Online-Event taking place on Wednesday, 10th November 2021 from 04:00-05:30 p.m. (CET), with Yana Abu Taleb, Jordanian Director, EcoPeace Middle East, Gidon Bromberg, Israeli Director, EcoPeace Middle, Nada Majdalani, Palestinian Director, EcoPeace Middle East Dr. Shaddad Atilli, Advisor ranking Minister at the Negotiations Support Department – PLO as well as Former Water minister, Prof. Alon Tal, Israeli Member of Knesset and Andrea Carignani di Novoli, Minister Counsellor, Head of Research & Innovation Section at the Delegation of the EU to the State of Israel.
