Vulnerability of the region to socio-economic drought( )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,022 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of all natural hazards, drought affects the greatest number of people globally, with devastating impact. The vulnerability of communities to drought is dependent on a host of physical, social, environmental and economic characteristics. In recent years, owing to population growth, soil degradation, increased desertification, and projected climate change scenarios, drought research and planning has become crucial to averting and mitigating drought disasters. Drought vulnerability research examines how the impacts of drought are a result of the interactions of social, political and economic systems, as well as the meteorological drought phenomenon. However, in the past, drought monitoring and research focused almost exclusively on the relation of climatic patterns and rainfall deficiencies to water supply. However, such a focus does not examine how human water use exacerbates deficits in water supply and quality. As a result, there is a worldwide insufficiency of disaster preparedness and mitigation methods that adequately address the socio-economic effects of drought and integrate drought planning into water resource management. The objective of the present study is to address the gap in understanding socio-economic drought in the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) region, and to raise awareness of the importance of developing drought detection, prevention, preparedness and mitigation measures regionally. In order to examine the socio-economic impacts of drought, this report presents measures taken on drought management and mitigation from three regional case-studies--Jordan, the Syrian Arab Republic and Yemen--and addresses the need for regional drought preparedness planning
Privatization and structural adjustment in the Arab countries : papers presented at a seminar held in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, December 5-7, 1988 by Saʻid El-Naggar( )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1,014 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The issue of privatization has come to dominate the economic agenda in many countries, both developed and developing. In the latter, privatization is seen as a policy option that could play an important role in the process of adjustment and development. The Arab countries are no exception. In fact, most of them are faced with major external and internal imbalances that are reflected in slow growth, balance of payments deficits, high unemployment, and severe inflationary pressures. There is an obvious and pressing need to eliminate macroeconomic and structural distortions. In certain cases the public sector has proved to be a major source of distortion. While some public enterprises are making positive contributions to government revenue, many others constitute a significant drain on resources. In terms of economic efficiency, the public sector leaves much to be desired. Under these circumstances it is hardly surprising that governments are paying increased attention to the possible benefits to be derived from expanding the role of the private sector
