Addressing Climate Risks: Cooperation on Transboundary Climate Adaptation in the MENA region
Communities across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region are experiencing the destabilizing impacts of climate change in different and costly ways. Challenges like rising sea levels, floods, heat waves, and droughts do not stop at borders and are testing the region's collective resilience. Transboundary considerations of climate adaptation strategies are only just gaining traction and limited information is available on both the risks and opportunities in the region. This event will initiate a discussion for stakeholders in the region to identify promising practices and ways to enhance cooperation around transboundary adaptation and prospects for development, stability, and peace.
