EcoPeace

The "Good Water Neighbors" (GWN) project was established by EcoPeace Friends of the Earth Middle East (FoEME) in 2001 to raise awareness of the shared water problems of Palestinians, Jordanians, and Israelis. GWN looks to identify cross-border communities and utilize their mutual dependence on shared water resources as a basis for developing dialogue and cooperation on sustainable water management. GWN has created real improvement within the water sector by building trust and understanding that has led to shared problem solving and peace building among communities even in the midst of conflict.
