One exciting new feature of FoEME’s new blog will be a weekly roundup of news stories related to our work here in Israel, Jordan, and Palestine.
Here are a few important headlines for this past week:
- According to new calculations, the Dead Sea may dry up completely by 2050 (featuring quotes from FoEME’s very own Munqeth Mehyar!)
- Arb al-Ramdin, a Palestinian village in the West Bank, is suffering water shortages due to conflict with a nearby settlement over wandering donkeys
- A conference report by the The Arab Forum for Environment and Development (AFED) shows that Middle Eastern (Arab) countries are especially vulnerable to the effects of climate change, particularly water scarcity
Stay tuned next week for more updates!
