Although protecting natural environments is key for human development, the role of biodiversity in peace processes has been neglected.
The Universities of Lausanne and Tel Aviv developed the project “Barn Owls Know no Boundaries” to promote dialogue between Israelis, Palestinians and Jordanians. Farmers from these three regions use barn owls as biological pest control agents instead of spreading poison to kill rodents.
The usefulness of protecting biodiversity in peace processes will be illustrated with this project developed in the Middle East.
