Iran

Living Earth Foundation has been working in Iran since 2006, initially working within the framework of the Persian Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) project, in which Shell and Repsol were key partners. Since January 2010 however, Living Earth has been working in Iran with the support of the European Commission (EC).

Objectives in Iran

Living Earth recognises the importance of promoting cross-sector relationships in the region and is working with key Iranian and international stakeholders to provide a platform for dialogue to ensure that relevant local and regional partners experience positive impacts from industrial projects and are satisfied with the ways that issues are managed.
