The University of Barcelona and the Palestine Technical University – Kadoorie, in Tulkarm, in the West Bank, have signed a cooperation agreement to promote the collaboration between both institutions in the academic and scientific fields. One of the most distinguished actions is the improvement of the agricultural production in Palestine territory. 

In particular, the UB, through the UB Solidarity Foundation, will take part in the project “Empowerment, advocating, innovation and fight against the climate change by Palestinian women’s cooperatives”, funded by the Catalan Agency for Development Cooperation. The initiative is aimed at improving the capacity of Palestinian women’s cooperatives, members of the Palestinian Farmers’ Union (PFU), regarding agricultural production, water management, cooperative organization and other aspects related to the fight against climate change. 

Specifically, the UB Solidarity Foundation will collaborate in the inclusion of training itineraries related to certain aspects of water management and agricultural production, and in the improvement of an experimental farm —linked to the University— in agriculture, water and sustainability. The Foundation has a certified experience in this field, as seen in the deployment of similar projects in Sant Louis (Senegal) and Ha Long (Vietnam).   

The rector of the University of Barcelona, Joan Guàrdia, and the president of the Palestine Technical University – Kadoorie, Nouraddin Aburob, are glad with the agreement of both institutions, which will also promote the exchange of administration and services staff, teaching and research staff and students.
