Luciani, Giacomo & Ferroukhi, Rabia, Political Economy of Energy Reform: The Clean Energy-Fossil Fuel Balance in the Gulf, Berlin & Londres, Gerlach Press, 2013, 320p.
Climate change requires coordinated global responses. All nations, including major Gulf Arab oil producers, should implement policies to contain greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Yet all realistic scenarios point to the continuing global need for fossil fuels. This book shows that the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) face a dilemma between continuing development and use of their fossil fuel endowment and increasing reliance on low carbon sources.
