Profile Information

My personal story:
Friends of the Earth Middle East (FoEME) is a unique organization that brings together Jordanian, Palestinian, and Israeli environmentalists. Our primary objective is the promotion of cooperative efforts to protect our shared environmental heritage. In so doing, we seek to advance both sustainable regional development and the creation of necessary conditions for lasting peace in our region. FoEME has offices in Amman, Bethlehem, and Tel-Aviv. FoEME is a member of Friends of the Earth International, the largest grassroots environmental organization in the world.
Why I want peace:
Water has been a prime issue in the Middle East that has both created possibilities for conflict as well as opportunities for cooperation. The scarcity of water in arid and semi-arid regions leads to intense political pressures, often referred to as "water stress." Political maneuvers by one country to secure water resources often hurt the water consumers of another country, and in times of conflict governmental cooperation on water issues can seem especially difficult. But shared water resources can also be a catalyst for dialogue. In fact water supply issues in the Israeli Arab conflict have been primarily the focus of cooperation rather than conflict.
Interests and activities:
FoEME is a project oriented NGO, using both a “top-down” (advocacy) approach coupled with a “bottom-up” (grass roots / community) strategy that has proven to be a very effective work model.

Our projects can be categorized according to the following themes:

* Geographical context - the Dead Sea Rift Valley runs from the Gulf of Aqaba / Eilat, in the south, along the Arava Valley, through the Dead Sea, up the Jordan River into the Sea of Galilee and beyond, connecting the peoples of the Eastern Mediterranean. Many of our projects are located along this shared, complex ecosystem.

* Socio-Economic based projects focus on issues such as sustainable water use, water privatization, trade, sustainable development, water as a human security issue, developing renewable energy and healthy food practices.

* Climate change stands on its own, as being one of the greatest environmental, social and economic threats facing the planet today, especially to our scarce water resources.

Gardening with Less Water: Xeriscape in Amman

Posted on November 2, 2011 at 9:01am 0 Comments

If you and your family were setting out to sea indefinitely on a small ship that would receive limited deliveries of potable water once a week, chances are you wouldn’t plant a garden of hibiscus and bougainvillea on deck. Why not? Because it would be impractical: these ornamental plants guzzle fresh water. They would be pretty to look at, but you’d soon chuck them overboard when you had to decide if you or the bougainvillea got the water that…

Great to see your work!  The Middle East is a microcosm of the challenges we face as a globe towards finding ways to share resources for our future generations.  Ironically it is often through common threats eg environmental catastrophes that we realise our similarities as humans is much greater than our differences.  The recent fires in Israel saw the contribution of firefighting planes from Turkey.
