CARPO Study 09: “The Looming Climate Peril. Sustainable Strategies and Environmental Activism in the Middle East and North Africa” is the first volume of their new Sustainability Series, which aims to contribute to the slowly growing but still very marginal research on sustainability in the Middle East and North African (MENA) region
Taking the viewpoint of ‘political ecology’, this first issue of the newly created CARPO Sustainability Series highlights the social and political implications of sustainable transformation across the broader MENA region.
Overall, it aims to achieve four goals:
(a) to provide a comprehensive overview of existing research and avenues of thought
(b) to supply a cross-sectoral analysis across the MENA region, rather than in-depth single case studies
(c) to uncover broader implications and dialectic relationships between sustainability and political power constellations
(d) to sketch out some potential future developments and dynamics over the coming years.
