The Middle East is a Ticking Time Bomb
The implications of climate change in the Middle East are catastrophic—and they are global. The climate crisis is inflaming extremism and instability in the most water-scarce region on the planet. Without global leadership and meaningful action, millions of people will lose their livelihoods and could become climate refugees.
An international coalition of governments, a ‘coalition of the willing,’ is needed to help bring together the Jordanian, Palestinian, and Israeli governments to create shared climate-smart solutions.
The Green Blue Deal for the Middle East
Urges Action in 4 Key Areas:
Jordanian/Palestinian/Israeli cooperation to improve adaptive capacities on water and renewable energy security by creating a water and renewable energy exchange

Rehabilitating the Jordan River and its once rich biodiversity through investments in region-wide climate-smart initiatives and creation of green jobs
Promoting public awareness and education programs—particularly directed toward youth—on resilience diplomacy in the water and climate fields as a means of conflict resolution and peace building.
