Climate Vulnerability and Human Security in the Jordan River Basin

The London School of Economics’ Middle East Centre, in concert with Birzeit University in Palestine, is launching a new project titled “Transboundary Climate Security: Climate Vulnerability and Human Security in the Jordan River Basin,” which will examine “climate vulnerable rural communities” in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory. According to the researchers:

The aim of the research is to develop improved policy responses for climate risk management within the Jordan River Basin through a better understanding of the linkages between climate change, adaptation and human security.

This is important work in a region where such issues are often overshadowed by more immediate and pressing security issues.
