APN president has attended ESCWA’s expert group meeting on Water-Energy-Food Security Nexus in the Arab region.

The meeting held on March 24-25, 2015 in Amman aimed to build understanding of the overall scope of this nexus for advancing sustainable development; and to frame it within the context of the Arab region through the revision of case studies.In remarks at the meeting, Zuayter underlined the need to take into account the specificity of the Arab region which is facing a series of crises who some seek to prolong and the need for work at international and not only  regional level because the influence of global powers, particularly the donors, on Arab policies cannot be overlooked.

Zuayter also spoke of the need to engage the civil society in any future meeting.
