When It All Began….
The Arab Group for the Protection of Nature (APN), was established as a member-based non-profit organization in April, 2003 by a group of motivated people concerned with the protection of the environment and the natural resources in Arab countries against all hazards including the destructive impacts of wars and foreign occupations.
APN is managed by a board of directors composed of seven members elected by the general assembly. Its work is guided by the resolve, commitment and dedication of its members and aided by the engagement of its supporters.
APN is committed to protect the natural and human resources in Arab countries by initiating campaigns and plans, implementing projects, supporting and partaking in efforts to achieve this goal and spreading awareness of the degradation of the environment caused by acts and practices committed during wars and occupations.
APN also seeks to enhance capacities of Arab civil societies to actively engage in international debates on environmental issues.
