Outlook for the Arab Region: Environment for Development and
Human Well-being is the first official, comprehensive, and
integrated assessment of the state of environment in the
Arab region. It is a credible, scientific assessment that
provides a base for policy formulation in the region.
The report was prepared in
response to a decision by the Council of Arab Ministers
Responsible for the Environment, in its 17th session,
held at the headquarters of the Secretariat-General of the
League of Arab States, in Cairo, Egypt, in December 2005.
