Sticklor offers four ways to help combat water scarcity in Christian Science Monitor

in Program

Russell Sticklor, a research analyst at the Stimson Center, argues in a recent op-ed for the Monitor that more attention must be paid to a looming water crisis in the Middle East and North Africa. A severe water shortage, Mr. Sticklor says, could further exacerbate tensions in the arid region. But conservation, communication, education, and technology can help.

Here, Sticklor offers four ways that individuals can learn about and help combat water shortages.

1. Learn about NGOs promoting environmental cooperation in Mideast

Learn about local nongovernmental organizations working in the Middle East to improve cross-border communication and cooperation over shared natural resources.

Friends of the Earth Middle East, an NGO with offices in IsraelJordan, and the Palestinian Territories, offers a prime example of how international environmental cooperation can be used as a tool for peacebuilding and conflict prevention.
