Crafting a resolution calling on global leaders to recognize and address a looming water shortage in Gaza was the major joint concern addressed at the recent Malta-III Conference in Istanbul, Turkey. Scientists from 13 Middle Eastern countries and Israel gathered in December to raise awareness of critically needed water reclamation projects in Gaza, among other important environmental issues.

The record 87 participants unanimously passed a resolution calling on governments to look beyond present conflicts and address issues that ultimately will affect the health of everyone in the region. The Gaza resolution was sent to Middle East envoy Tony Blair, the former Prime Minister of Great Britain, for further action.
The conference’s intensive workshops produced initiatives regarding air and water quality, education and green chemistry, alternative energy sources, medicinal and natural products and nano-technology. Plans were made to launch a workshop in Turkey this summer on nano-technology for post-doctorate and graduate students from the Middle East. Nine Middle Eastern representatives also committed to join the organizing committee for the 2009 Malta-IV Conference, the first time scientists from the region will help plan the next event.

Founded in 2003 by Dr. Zafra Lerman, professor of science and public policy at Columbia College Chicago, the Malta-III Conference included six plenary lectures by Nobel Laureates Aaron Ciechanover of Israel, Richard Ernst of Switzerland, Tim Hunt of the United Kingdom, and Americans Roald Hoffmann, Walter Kohn and Sherry Rowland. Middle Eastern participants arrived from Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.

The Malta-III conference was co-sponsored by UNESCO, the American Chemical Society, the Royal Society of Chemistry (England), and others.
