Eastern Mediterranean Energy Project
Launched in 2012, GMF’s Eastern Mediterranean Energy Project addresses the political and economic implications of the discovery of energy resources in the Eastern Mediterranean region. The goal of the project is to raise awareness of the opportunities posed by these resources and to identify ways to overcome challenges in the region.
The project examines how the region’s energy resources can reinforce efforts to resolve conflicts and to promote cooperation. It considers how natural gas and possibly, in the future, oil can deliver financial benefits and contribute to the economic recovery of Cyprus and Egypt, strengthen the energy security of Israel and Jordan and, when circumstances permit, provide new prospects to Lebanon and the Palestinians.
Based in Brussels and Washington DC, the project combines research and analysis with networking and convening in Europe, the United States and the Eastern Mediterranean region. The project is led by Sir Michael Leigh, Transatlantic Academy Fellow and senior advisor to GMF.
