Forging a partnership for environmental action : an environmental strategy toward sustainable development in the Middle East and North Africa : Forger un partenariat pour une action environnementale - stratégie environnementale pour le Moyen-Orient et l'Afrique du Nord : vers un développement durable (French)

This booklet presents a strategy to promote environmentally sustainable econoimic development in the Middle East and North Africa. It provides an overview of the current problems of natural resource scarcity and environmental pollution in the region and of some of their quantifiable costs. It proposes a range of initiatives for responding to these problems, presents estimates of their costs, and suggests ways to finance them. The recommended response includes a multifaceted set of actions emphasizing appropriate incentives and selective investments to protect public health and natural resource base within national institutional, legal, and regulatory frameworks. In addition to recommending actions to be taken by the countries of the region, the booklet identifies ways in which external agents - private investors, bilateral donors, and international organizations, including the World Bank - can support local efforts.
