The Palestinian Environmental NGOs Network (PENGON)
The Palestinian Environmental NGOs Network- Friends of Earth Palestine (PENGON-FoE Palestine) is a coordinating body among different Palestinian NGOs working in the field of environment.
It aims to serve Palestinian environmental issues by coordinating endeavors between the member organisations, strengthening and building the efficiency within each organisation, and enhancing relations within the Network as well as with other organisations domestically and abroad, such as local government agencies and international environmental organisations and advocacy groups.
PENGON-FOE Palestine aims to serve Palestinian environmental issues by coordinating endeavors between the member organisations. PENGON looks to coordinate Palestinian efforts, in order to resist and highlight the Israeli’s violations against Palestinian Environment, and Israel’s control on Palestinian natural resources. PENGON sees international advocacy as fundamental in its hopes to stop these violations against our environment.
PENGON- FoE Palestine was established in 1996 to serve the Palestinian environment by coordinating the scattered efforts of the different Palestinian NGOs working in the field of environment.The idea of establishing a network of Palestinian environmental organisations began when a number of NGOs felt the urgent need to protect our environment and face the environmental violations.
PENGON-FOE Palestine is the only environmental network for Palestinian environmental organisations in both the West Bank and Gaza Strip. PENGON became a member in Friends of the Earth International in 2008.
