Featuring Ambassador of the Arab Republic of Egypt to the U.S. Ambassador Motaz Zahran

The Ambassador will also discuss the unique parallels between Egypt and Arizona, including similar efforts to address climate and water issues as they manage being on the front lines of a changing global environmental situation.

Zahran and Prof. Thomas Volgy of the University of Arizona’s School of Government and Public Policy, followed by a discussion of climate and water issues between the Ambassador and Prof. Sharon Megdal, Director of the University of Arizona’s Water Resources Research Center and Professor and Specialist in the Department of Environmental Science.
