Water Security in the Middle East

Communication and Media Training on Water

The Communications and Media Training on Water project will support the Blue Peace Middle East process by:

  • Building and sustaining awareness around the various challenges and aspects of water in the Middle East in the public and particularly among young media professionals;
  • Building and expanding the Blue Peace media network so that especially a new generation of journalists, bloggers and social media reporters, but also established journalists, become involved in covering water-related topics in the region in a credible and convincing way and articles are published with Blue Peace media partners creating momentum and continuity;
  • Providing a new generation of journalists, opinion makers and media people with knowledge, skills and tools to communicate key aspects of water issues more effectively.

Seecon, together with the consortium members will:

  • Develop a media strategy,
  • Establish a network of journalists interested in water and environmental challenges and developments,
  • Implement a range of training and networking activities in all five target countries, and
  • Develop an online platform to provide exposure
