MEED: Middle East Economic Digest;5/4/2007, Vol. 51 Issue 18, p1
Trade Publication
The author argues that any initiative to end the rise in carbon dioxide emissions must be global and the Middle East must be an integral part of it. He believes that this is a huge opportunity for the region. He cites that one of the most promising initiatives, carbon trading, in particular has enormous potential for the region and discusses reasons for the Middle East to get involved. He mentions the potential for solar power which makes it well placed to accrue carbon credits, as an example.
