The Palestinian Environmental NGOs Network (PENGON) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization 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 organizations began when a number of NGOs felt the urgent need to protect our environment and face the environmental violations.
PENGON members’ organizations cover a wide range of environmental issues such as:
Developing and sustaining natural resources.
Combating environmental pollution.
Developing and maintaining archeological sites.
Eco & environmental tourism.
Developing alternative & renewable energy.
The Palestinian Environmental NGOs Network is a coordinating body between the different Palestinian NGOs working in the field of environment. It aims to serve Palestinian environmental issues by coordinating endeavors between the member organizations, strengthening and building the capacity within each member organization, and enhancing relations with other local and international organizations including local government agencies and international environmental organizations.
