Communicating the shift towards water resilience

AMWAJ Manifesto

Commit to protect and restore water ecosystems in the Mediterranean

The UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration has put forth this year a call for restoring our ecosystems. The AMWAJ Manifesto has been created following his movement to demonstrate that the people of our planet stand together in this mission. 

By developing water content and communication tools to empower the next generation of leaders and spread this collaborative momentum, the Manifesto urges national governments and financial institutions to ramp up policies and investments to protect and restore water-related ecosystems in the Mediterranean and the Middle East.

Fishing for Hope: A Story of Egypt’s Army of Nile Cleaners 

Did you know that every year 570,000 tons of plastic ends up in the Mediterranean? Egypt contributes to almost half of this amount with 250,000 tons every year.

The organisation is creating job opportunities for fishermen, that are fishing an average of 100kg of recyclables every day. Discover more about the Nile’s clean up in our latest Tayyarat article.
