Interested scholars please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
A harsh natural environment, rapid urbanization and a warming climate combine to put increasing pressure on the environment of the Gulf Coast Countries. As a result, the region faces a number of environmental challenges, including ensuring water security, improving air quality, and protecting marine resources. We propose here to gather regional, academic, and governmental experts to discuss how to address these challenges.
The conference is organized around three main themes:
Air pollution and water security
Fisheries and marine ecosystems
Climate change and its regional impacts
The goals of the conference are:
To showcase research in environmental sciences done at NYUAD and other local universities
To identify specific environmental challenges for the UAE and the Gulf Coast Countries
To foster greater collaboration with regional academic and governmental institutions.
Our broader agenda here is to lay the foundation for a regional environmental consortium involving regional universities and government agencies that would facilitate data and knowledge exchange, support research on environmental problems, and offer to governmental entities a local network of experts to help in assessing the various environmental challenges facing the regions.
