My name is Batir Wardam and I am a Jordanian environmental researcher and communicator with working experience in disciplines of natural resources management, environmental policies and environmental communication. I write a daily column in Addustour newspaper in Jordan focusing on political, economic and social issues from a sustainability perspective.
This blog attempts to discuss how the Arab world is confronting its chronic and emerging environmental challenges within the context of the deep political, economic and social changes sweeping the region, better known as the “Arab Spring”.
The blog was created in March 2012 as a continuation of the Arab Environment Watch blog that was functional between 2006-2010 at the domain www.arabenvironment.net
I hope you will find the information in the blog useful for your work and knowledge and I hope you will continue to follow up with the blog development and to provide me with any suggestions and feedback you feel necessary. If you would like to post any news items or articles about your work or the work of your organization that includes policy options and practical solutions to climate change challenges in Jordan and the region I would be privileged to post them.
