Middle East and North Africa Climate Week
This year, the first-ever Middle East and North Africa Climate Week will be held in Dubai from March 28-31. A key conference on the road to the COP27 climate summit in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, MENA Climate Week will bring together government policymakers, private sector representatives, members of civil society, and other key stakeholders to discuss current and future climate challenges across the MENA region and shine a spotlight on potential climate solutions.
Through event participation, media availability, and donor and partner meetings at MENA Climate Week, IWMI will establish key linkages between water, climate, and sustainable development in the MENA region while using the conference as a springboard to secure prominent placement for water security, food security, and climate resilience on the COP27 agenda. MENA Climate Week also offers IWMI and our partners a powerful platform to highlight our ongoing work across the region to strengthen water and climate security and promote innovative, scalable water solutions that can help lay the foundation for a climate-resilient future for the region.
To get more details about IWMI’s work across the MENA region, explore our curated resources on this page, which cover everything from enhanced drought monitoring to water recycling and wastewater reuse. In particular, we invite you to learn more about key IWMI projects across the region, including Groundwater Governance in the Arab World, MENAdrought: Empowering and Enhancing Drought Management Systems in the Middle East and North Africa, Nature Based Solutions to Enhance Water Security in the Middle East, ReWater MENA: More and Safer Water Reuse in Middle East and North Africa, WaPOR: Remote Sensing for Water Productivity and Water and Energy for Food: MENA Regional Innovation Hub. And we hope you will join us — whether in-person or virtually — at MENA Climate Week in Dubai.
