A Global Supplier of Zero-Carbon Fuels: The Middle East and North Africa
As global decarbonization efforts intensify and geopolitical dynamics shift, the Middle East and North Africa regions have the opportunity to play a leadership role as global exporters of zero-carbon fuels. With their existing energy infrastructure and expertise, coupled with access to energy markets in Europe, Africa, and Asia, the region can transform itself into a global provider of low-carbon hydrogen and ammonia, and an innovator in carbon capture and storage technology and upstream methane emissions controls with the right policy, market conditions, and international cooperation. At COP27, panelists explored how the Middle East and North African regions can seize the opportunity before them and transform themselves from suppliers of unabated fossil fuels into a climate-forward, global suppliers of abundant clean energy.
Speakers: Adam Sieminski, KAPSARC; Dr. Paul Noumba Um, World Bank; Daria Nochevnik, Hydrogen Council; Kamel Ben-Naceur, Society of Petroleum Engineers International, Nomadia Energy; Olivia Azadegan, Clean Air Task Force (moderator)

A Call to Action: Building the Resilience of North Africa’s Coast
Fishermen, families, hotel owners, and coastal farmers are all sounding an alarm: North Africa’s coast has reached its tipping point. Coastal hotspots in Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, and Tunisia, for a start, are “absolutely exhausted” from overfishing and coastal erosion. The Mediterranean Sea is warming twice as fast as the global ocean, with worsening marine pollution, and the fastest-growing coastal cities. Still, many are hopeful that coastal adaptation can turn the tide. A new World Bank program is working within the region to protect the communities on the coast—even as they grow.
