Please join us for the upcoming Global Evidence for Egypt spotlight seminar on climate change, which will focus on how evidence from randomized evaluations conducted globally can inform efforts to tackle climate change in Egypt. This seminar is co-hosted by J-PAL Middle East and North Africa (MENA) at the American University in Cairo (AUC) and UNICEF Egypt, supported by Allianz.

This seminar is the seventh in the Global Evidence for Egypt Spotlight Series, which brings together Egyptian policymakers and researchers in the J-PAL network for a discussion about how to tackle priority policy issues in Egypt. During each seminar, policymakers highlight a particular development priority in Egypt and J-PAL affiliated professors offer evidence-informed insights for improving policy and program design from a global perspective. Together, the panel of policymakers and J-PAL affiliates ground the evidence in the Egyptian context and explore possible policy solutions.

The panel discussion will foster a conversation between Egypt’s climate priorities and the relevant rigorous global evidence, ultimately providing insights into how we can incorporate evidence-based solutions in combating climate change to ensure that climate financing and resources are effectively allocated in the Egyptian context.
