Friends of the Arava Institute cordially invite you to “Water as an Instrument for Peace: Middle Eastern Cooperation in the Face of COVID-19,” a virtual town hall meeting in memory of professor Franklin Fisher.

Water is a precious commodity in the Middle East. Climate change and pollution threaten clean water access, and the need for water drives regional conflict in the already water-starved Middle East. Faced with a challenge that flows across borders, there is an urgent need for collaboration to secure the future of this shared resource. This challenge is particularly poignant as COVID-19 has highlighted the widespread need for accessible clean water.

Join us for a town hall conversation with three leading experts in Middle East water policy and cross-border work. They will share updates on Israel’s technological advances in water treatment and opportunities for partnership, which will benefit the health and security of the entire region. During this vibrant virtual event, the audience will be invited to submit questions for discussion.

Our panel includes:

  • Professor Eilon Adar, professor emeritus, Ben Gurion University, and chair, Arava Institute Board of Directors
  • Dr. Clive Lipchin, director, Center for Transboundary Water Management at the Arava Institute
  • Professor Sharon Megdal, director, Water Resources Research Center at the University of Arizona
