Climate Change, Drought, Water Crisis and environmental problems in Iran: Opportunities for rapprochement between Iran and the West

Environmental cooperation with Iran provides a unique opportunity for the United States and the Europeans to build important bridges with Iran.  Chandran Nair, the founder and C.E.O. of The Global Institute for Tomorrow, and the author of “Consumptionomics,” has a good proposal in his latest article: “Western nations should reach out to Tehran and propose the creation of an international body to advise Iran on the water crisis and environmental issues in general. This may seem idealistic, but there are many good precedents for outreach of this kind, including the China Council for International Cooperation on Environment and Development, a body founded in 1992 that advises China on environmental issues and whose membership includes representatives from several Western countries.”
