The conference aims to bring women – who are most affected by water challenges, food insecurity, armed conflict and displacement, and reduced economic opportunity – into the conversation. It will also bring vital youth voices to the table to explore ways in which women-led / targeted, and youth-led / targeted initiatives might solve environmental and sustainability challenges whilst simultaneously promoting women’s economic participation and leadership and addressing the crisis of youth unemployment in the region. Maha Al Salehi yound <ater professional from EMWIS Technical Unit will take part in roundtable on water scarcity, sustainability, environmental and development challenges in the MENA region.
