In the Middle East, climate change poses an unchecked threat as it sharpens socioeconomic inequalities and further jeopardizes the plight of vulnerable communities already challenged by poor governance, water shortages, and conflict-induced displacement. While some Middle East governments have been proactive in the transition to renewable energy, there is still much more they can and should do to adapt to the far-reaching effects of climate change through better governance and inclusion.  

Join a panel of distinguished scholars for a wide-ranging discussion on the cascading impacts of climate change in the Middle East and how governments and citizens can prepare.
