Event Hydrodiplomacy and Climate Change for Peace in the Middle East:Case of the Nile Basin

Hydrodiplomacy and Climate Change for Peace in the Middle East:Case of the Nile Basin 

Luxembourg Palace- French Senate- Salle Clemenceau

11 December 2017 (14: 00-18: 30)   


During the past two years, two successful symposiums have been hosted by the Palace of Luxembourg at the French Senate, respectively on "Hydrodiplomacy and Climate Change for Peace in the Near East: Case of the Orontes Basin (2015)" and "Hydrodiplomacy and Climate Change for Peace in the Middle East: Case of the Jordan Basin (2016)" that brought together a large number of politicians and experts to exchange views on these topics. The events were an initiative of H.E Mr. Olivier Cadic, Senator representing the French nationals overseas and Dr. Fadi Comair, Honorary President of MENBO1, the initiator of the concept of Hydrodiplomacy.

As a result of these symposiums the concept of hydrodiplomacy has been considerably reinforced to become a tool for peace and sustainability for public actors in the management of transboundary basins and for the safety and security of water resources.

Following their success, it was decided to organize a third symposium for the Nile Basin that will tackle the following subjects:


  • Geopolitics of the Nile Basin: political process for the reduction of hotspots and the impacts of global changes.
  • Hydrodiplomacy of the Nile Basin: securing water resources for future generations.
