Crisis and Environment crowdfunding campaign – We are collecting funds to be able to continue the project
We started the project in 2017. Our team has travelled to Jordan, Turkey, Greece and Lebanon. Using multiple communication channels, we wanted to raise awareness about the crises related to water and the environment at large, and the impacts they have. It is widely documented that the well-being of people and the environment are strongly linked.
In this project we look into the challenges on the environment, and therefore also into human well-being, caused by the Syrian war and the consequent large number of people fleeing internally displaced in Syria and also fleeing to Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq, Turkey and Greece.
Major challenges on the environment caused by the crisis include: stress on groundwater resources, an increase in water consumption and amounts of wastewater, huge increases in the generation of waste, degradation of soil and grazing lands, challenges on land use, biodiversity loss and increased air pollution.
