The Green Economy in the Gulf (Routledge Explorations in Environmental Studies)
Filling a void in academic and policy-relevant literature on the topic of the green economy in the Arabian Gulf, this edited volume provides a multidisciplinary analysis of the key themes and challenges relating to the green economy in the region, including in the energy and water sectors and the urban environment, as well as with respect to cross-cutting issues, such as labour, intellectual property and South-South cooperation.
Over the course of the book, academics and practitioners from various fields demonstrate why transitioning into a ‘:green economy’: –: a future economy based on environmental sustainability, social equity and improved well-being –: is not an option but a necessity for the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) States. Through chapters covering key economic sectors and cross-cutting issues, the book examines the GCC states’: quest to align their economies and economic development with the imperatives of environmental sustainability and social welfare, and proposes a way forward, based on lessons learned from experiences in the region and beyond.
This volume will be of great relevance to scholars and policy makers with an interest in environmental economics and policy.
