Applied Research Institute – Jerusalem (ARIJ)
Applied Research Institute of Jerusalem (ARIJ )environment policy aims to provide the public with data about the status of the environment in Palestine, which can be used as the basis for formulating recommendations. Specifically, the water and environment research department at ARIJ which maintains a laboratory, hydroponics unit and a weather station, seeks to identify existing environmental problems, locating sources of environmental pollutants, and measuring the extent of their impact. Through the use of technology ARIJ also evaluates and tries to solve environmental problems; thus identifying the best scenarios for development trends and their effects on the environment. ARIJ conducts environmental consulting services and feasibility studies, including site assessment; design construction of landfills, and remediation activities. Particularly, the water and environment department aims to introduce and adopt feasible approaches in the management of waste, testing and introducing environmental technologies targeted towards reducing the solid-waste hazards and air pollution, and implementing pilot projects in the field of waste water. Accordingly, through focusing on the role of society in managing water resources, ARIJ is involved in installing friendly small and medium scale waste water treatment units in a number of Palestinian villages.
Beirut Arab University
Beirut Arab University (BAU) is one of the largest private higher education institutions and one of the oldest universities in Lebanon. Such privilege combined with the advantages of the city itself, renders the university extremely attractive to would-be students. BAU is committed to preserving the important ties with Arabic and Islamic civilization and promoting its heritage, in addition to enforcing cultural and scientific collaboration with other Arab as well as international universities. BAU aspires to advance by strengthening the human condition and improving the quality of life.

International Center for Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA)
The International Center for Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA) is a not-for-profit, international center of excellence for research and development in marginal environments. The Center originally focused on the problems of salinity and using saline water for irrigated agriculture. Over the last 13 years, ICBA has evolved into a world-class modern research facility with a team of international scientists conducting applied research to improve the well-being of poor farmers in marginal environments. In 2013, the Center developed a new strategic direction addressing the closely linked challenges of income, water, nutrition, and food security. The new Strategy takes innovation as a core principle and identifies five innovations that form the core research agenda: assessment of natural resources; climate change adaptation; crop productivity and diversification; aquaculture and bioenergy, and policy analysis. ICBA is working on a number of technology developments including the use of conventional and non-conventional water (such as saline, treated wastewater, industrial water and seawater); water and land management technologies; remote sensing and modeling for climate change adaptation.
