About the Project

This project focuses on socio-economic impacts, risks and opportunities, and potential for conflict, of different electricity scenarios and power production technologies in several countries within the MENA region.

Funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), and consisting of BICC, which leads the project, Germanwatch, IIASA, the Wuppertal Institute, and the University of Flensburg, the project examines the socio-economic impacts, risks and opportunities of different electricity scenarios within the MENA region by employing a participatory approach with local stakeholders. One of the principle objectives of this project is to help inform national decision-makers and debate with regard to potential pathways for sustainable energy policies.
