Item description for Challenging Environmental Issues: Middle Eastern Perspectives (International Studies in Sociology and Social Anthropology) by Joseph G. Jabbra & Nancy W. Jabbra...
This volume is the result of the co-authors' interest in understanding the environmental problems faced by all countries in the Middle East. It is also the result of the authors' 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, the geography and arid and semi-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. These issues are all addressed by individual scholars within eight chapters which include: Jordan, Oman, Lebanon, Israel, Sudan, the Arabian Gulf, Iran and Syria.
