General Information
FoEME has a local board employing 38 staff from the region. Our funding is totally dependent on donations and calls for proposals but we tend to raise a million $US a year. Our main sources are from the EU, European governments, USAID, Japan, foundations and private donations. We work both top down and bottom up producing advocacy reports and yet undertaking community based work. We partner with local municipalities, other CBOs and environment and peace organizations.

Main Projects / Activities

GOOD WATER NEIGHBORS PROJECT The key purpose of the Good Water Neighbors project is to identify pilot communities in Israel, Jordan and the Palestine to raise awareness through youth and adult activities at the community level as to their own water reality and promote more sustainable water management at the municipal/household level; advance trans-boundary cooperation between the neighboring communities in order to exchange information concerning each other’s water reality and seek to advance specific cooperation on common water problem solving issues; and to utilize the results and experience gained at the pilot community and partnering community level for a region-wide public awareness program on wise water use and water equity issues. In each community, field staff has worked in close partnership with youth and adults to improve their environment, and to create awareness of their own and their neighboring community’s water reality.
