Regional Climate and Energy Project

The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is suffering more from the implications of climate change than most other world regions. The rise in extreme weather conditions such as floods and droughts, a growing shortage of water, desertification and harvest losses that come with rising costs of food, are some of the most obvious consequences.

By advocating for an energy transition into renewable energy, we challenge the fossil fuel driven economies of many of the MENA countries and encourage the exploration of the enormous economic potential of solar and wind energy with a daily average of nine hours of sun. Not only businesses and investors should benefit of the energy transition, but also citizens, households and municipalities.

Thus, we search solutions for a just transition in the energy sector ensuring both, the protection of the planet and the people.

With our regional partner organizations and environmental activists, we promote the concept of international and domestic climate justice. We train our partners, civil society organisations, in climate diplomacy and bring them together with governments, support research and policy advising in the energy and climate change sector and work on local solutions for adaptation and energy efficiency on the ground.
