مؤتمر «تنمية الشراكة من أجل التكيف مع المناخ في الدول العربية» يشهد إطلاق مختبر مناخي إقليمي جديد لتعزيز الوصول إلى هواء نقي ومياه نظيفة
The Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab Middle East and North Africa (J-PAL MENA), based at the American University in Cairo, together with Community Jameel, announced the launch of the Clean Air and Water Lab in Egypt during the Partnership development for climate adaptation in the Arab states. The lab will address Egypt's most pressing air and water challenges as government-embedded teams leverage J-PAL research insights to co-diagnose issues and develop effective policy innovations through randomised evaluations and rigorous use of high-quality data.
George Richards, director of Community Jameel spoke at the event, saying, “Accelerating the pace of climate action is more urgent than ever, and we are committed to promoting policies and solutions based on scientific research findings to ensure that the actions taken by governments have the maximum possible impact. In this regard, the Clean Air and Water Lab, which was recently launched in Egypt, in partnership with J-PAL MENA, will generate realistic and accurate data that will contribute to making effective policies and enhance opportunities to provide clean air and water to millions of Egyptians in the face of climate change. Through this conference, we will be able to support climate actors in the region and provide them with the necessary data to build solutions and partnerships that will ultimately lead to coordinating efforts to confront the worsening climate crisis.”
