The Arab Group for the Protection of Nature (APN) has established a strategic partnership with the Organization to advance their common goals.

APN concluded a memorandum of understanding with AOAD on October, 9, 2019 to discuss aspects of cooperation between the two institutions. The aim is to enhance the ability of Arab peoples to protect and sustain their natural resources and maintain their sovereignty over them, especially in countries under occupation or affected by conflicts.
