Energy, Water and Environment

Finite resources are a general and worldwide challenge. They range from the limited supply of fossil fuel to the availability of a clean and habitable environment, fresh water and food. The strategies to protect the environment and to reach a sustainable energy supply differ locally, from the governmental to the individual level in the Arab world and in Germany. The working group on Energy, Water and Environment assesses the public perception of current initiatives and develops recommendations for energy policies. On this behalf they consider the local needs in both worlds.
