MINARET Project 2016-2020
The MENA Region Initiative as a Model of NEXUS Approach and Renewable Energy Technologies (MINARET) aims to come out with a NEXUS model that can be applied at municipal level in the MENA region countries. It is the first Project in the region that utilizes a NEXUS approach to find sustainable solutions to the unique water, energy and food security challenges that face each of the countries from a local municipal level. Stakeholders from all around the region discuss and plan together how to overcome the increasing constraints their countries and the region faces through fundamentally rethinking how we produce and consume energy in relation to the water and food sectors.
The 4-year project kicked off in the first quarter of 2017 to be implemented in Jordan, Tunisia and Lebanon.
The project partners include the Royal Scientific Society/National Energy Research Center (RSS/NERC)-Lead partner, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and Future Pioneers for Empowering Communities (FPEC), and is funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation’s (SIDA).
