Water Matters

Water Matters

 

The goal of the project is to strengthen a professional and personal relationship among: youth, entrepreneurs and leaders in the Israeli, Palestinian, and Jordanian communities promoting people-to people peacebuilding at the environmental level, an issue that affects all. Such relationships will facilitate healthy channels to mitigate conflict and encourage cooperation on water management and economic development in the Red Sea-Dead Sea region.  

Water Matters (WM) offers a platform that brings people together to 1) build "human" bridges across borders; 2) work on issues of common environmental concern; and 3) develop skills for sustained, improved livelihoods. Central to this endeavor will be the meaningful participation of women as actors, leaders, and decision-makers.

The project will strengthen the Dead-Red region by creating transformative dynamics that ease tensions and lay the groundwork for long-term peace building processes, benefiting people on all sides of the sea.
