FES Climate and Energy Project

Non-Government Organizations & Programs

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) is the oldest political foundation in Germany with a rich tradition in social democracy dating back to its founding in 1925. The FES office in Amman was established in 1986. FES shares the core values of social democracy which are freedom, justice and solidarity. As a non-profit institution, FES organizes its work autonomously and independently.

FES has stepped up its work on climate change and energy issues in the MENA region since the establishment of the Regional Climate and Energy (C&E) Project in Amman in 2013. The C&E Project is working actively, regionally and locally, under the three thematic fields of Just Energy Transition, Climate Justice, and Social and Sustainable Cities.

The C&E Project MENA supports various civil society groups and state institutions in their search for progressive approaches to climate and energy policy. It strengthens civil society organizations and cooperates with trade unions, the media, state actors at all levels, and research institutions to promote and achieve a socially just energy transition and climate justice in the region.

Climate and energy policies should not be designed in isolation from social developments. The work of FES Regional Climate and Energy Project links these two aspects and attempts to contribute to a socio-ecological transformation of societies in the MENA region. In doing so, it critically examines individual Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that are of particular importance for the climate and energy policies of the respective countries.

In cooperation with different partners, FES provides capacity building, produces policy papers and organizes discussion events to inform and give recommendations to decision makers on a just energy transition, climate justice and social and sustainable cities.
