Nabil Dowaikat   

A woman's memories from a minefield | babelmed | mediterranean cultureThe film of the memories flash before my eyes on the road to Kasserine, where the editors sent me to shoot an investigation into the terrible attack that took place there.

An interloper in both bathrooms

An interloper in both bathrooms  | babelmed | mediterranean cultureIt is impossible to talk about gender these days without using specific terminology designed to liberate those of us that have been marginalised by a normative binary gender regime.

Why Water is an Endangered Vital Resource in the Maghreb | babelmed | mediterranean cultureIn the Maghreb, water-related problems vary with the changing seasons—droughts, interruptions in service, floods—and can cause many deaths. This vital resource is increasingly scarce. In addition to the dry climate and water-intensive farming, bad government management and rising aggregate consumption, the region is a hotspot for global warming.

Ahmed Sawan   

From Egypt to Palestine, agroecology as a weapon | babelmed | mediterranean cultureClimate change increasingly threatens agricultural systems worldwide.

The contexts are different, Egypt has faced food riots which played a part in launching the 2011 revolution, and Palestine, smothered by the Israeli occupation, faces many difficulties in attempting to provide for its population. Yet in both cases, agroecology can serve as a solution. Orient XXI
