Mohammed Mahmoud on the social and environmental implications of water security in the Middle East
We’re joined today by Mohammed Mahmoud, Director of Climate and Water Program at the Middle East Institute, one of the oldest Washington DC based think-tanks dedicated to the study of the Middle East and its issues. We talk about his role at the Middle East Institute studying the region, and to understand the issues we’re seeing both globally and in the region as a result of climate change.
Mohammed has an extensive background in water resource issues and management, such as how climate impacts on the Nile River and policy issues among nations sharing the water, and a project in Saudi Arabia to formalise their ground water management code.
