In a testament to their commitment to addressing the challenges posed by water scarcity, unpredictable rainfall, and the impacts of climate change in the MENA region, RES4Africa Foundation (Renewable Energy Solutions for Africa) and Water and Energy for Food (WE4F) Middle East and North Africa Regional Innovation Hub (MENA RIH) are proud to announce their collaboration for a webinar on “Productive Energy Use in Agriculture in the MENA Region.” This strategic partnership aims to demonstrate the intricate nexus between water, energy, and food, with a particular emphasis on solar pumping and desalination technologies.
The MENA region, known to have some of the driest countries, confronts unprecedented challenges due to climate change. Agriculture, a linchpin of the region, is both a significant energy consumer and highly susceptible to climate-related disruptions. To foster climate-smart solutions, understanding the symbiotic relationship between different resources is crucial. Therefore, RES4Africa and WE4F are coming together to organize a webinar to explore innovative solutions and cultivate strategic collaborations.
