The impact of environmental issues on the living and on society, health and the economy mean it is crucial that they are understood by the general public. And yet in countries in the Arab World, environmental news and information still occupies a marginal place in the media. The subject is often dealt with sporadically, when there are natural disasters or major international meetings, such as the annual United Nations climate change conferences (les
the COP), or for reporting on the work of the IPCC.
Environmental news and information must also be thought about in the long term to promote sustainable development goals effectively and have a greater effect on the local population regarding the issues involved.
The MediaLabEnvironment project helps to increase knowledge and understanding of the environmental challenges, by providing a better grasp of high quality information about these subjects. It supports the development of individual and collective environmental awareness among the people of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Lebanon and Jordan.
