About PHG

PHG is a key research centre in the area, working both on applied and policy oriented research, and employing some 100 part-time and full-time researchers. PHG counts with major expertise in a host of issues related to water resources, hydrology, rainfall-runoff modelling, and the study of the impact of climate change on socioeconomic conditions. Together with three more Palestinian universities, it plays a key role in developing national water policy guidelines and strategies. Currently the organisation is a key partner in three projects implemented in cooperation with European and other Middle Eastern universities. Recently they have been selected as a key stakeholder for the development of an adaptation strategy for climate change impacts in the Palestinian Territories. PHG have considerable experience in collaborating in international research projects that deal with water resources, drought, climate change and human security in the area: they have participated in EU FP6 (GABERDINE) and FP5 (WASAMED) projects, UNDP-funded research on land and water integrated management under drought conditions, and two projects funded by the German Ministry of Science on integrated water resources management in the lower Jordan valley, and on sustainable management of water resources under climate change (GLOWA). Finally, PHG are involved in the water for peace regional project funded by the French government and the Green Cross Foundation.
