Ahead of COP27, environmental activists say they’re being stifled, government says otherwise

Human Rights Watch released a statement in mid-September saying the Egyptian government has been curtailing the work of environmental groups in the country, which is essential to protecting Egypt’s environment.

“The Egyptian government has imposed arbitrary funding, research, and registration obstacles that have debilitated local environmental groups, forcing some activists into exile and others to steer clear of important work,” said Richard Pearshouse, the environment director at HRW.
