Challenging Environmental Issues: Middle Eastern Perspectives
Joseph G. Jabbra, Nancy Walstrom Jabbra
BRILL, 1997 - Social Science - 167 pages
This volume is the result of the co-author's keen interest in better understanding the environmental problems faced by all countries in the Middle East. It is also the result of the co-authors' deep commitment to urge Middle Eastern citizens and their leaders to work together for better protection of their precious and fragile environment so that it may be saved for the enjoyment and safety of future generations. In the Middle East, geography and arid and simi-arid climatic conditions have led to a concentration of people in coastal zones and river valleys with acute water shortages, water and air pollution, increasing soil erosion, and intensifying desertification all creating serious environmental challenges. All these issues are addressed by eight leading scholars in eight chapters which include Jordan, Oman, Lebanon, Israel, Sudan, the Arabian Gulf, Iran, Syria.
