The 17th Annual conference of the Arab Society for Economic Research

04 November 2023


The Arab Society for Economic Research, in collaboration with the Mohammed Bin Rashid School of Government in Dubai, is organizing its seventeenth scientific conference on the 4th and 5th of November 2023 in Dubai.

The conference titled; "Climate Change and its Implications on Arab Economic Development," will discuss the main themes of climate change impacts, sustainable development, energy transition, and climate finance.

The conference will provide a platform for policymakers and researchers to exchange ideas and develop effective solutions to address the challenges of climate change in the Arab region.

The issue of climate change has gained prominence in global, regional, and national forums due to the significant challenges it poses to economic, human, and natural resources in their social, economic, and environmental dimensions. The Arab region is not immune to these challenges, despite its available human capital and natural and renewable resources, but it also has the potential to benefit from the opportunities that arise from them. Undoubtedly, rigorous scientific research is one of the most potent and proven methods to draw policy recommendations that policymakers can use to address climate change. 

The Arab region is undergoing rapid population growth and urbanization, leading to a pattern of demographic shift that could result in future labour force shortages. Around 18 of the 22 Arab  countries suffer from at least one or various forms of water scarcity. The energy sector is no different as it poses significant challenges to both oil-exporting and oil-importing countries. The dependence on fossil energy also threatens the stability of oil-producing countries, highlighting the need for the energy transition to ensure sustainable development.
