Abstract

The purpose of this article is to shed lights on environmental challenges, especially, greenhouse gas emission issues, lying ahead for Arab Countries where they have common background to be together to act on the issue. The literature of this study is presented and compared with an East Indian fable to make it attractive to the readers. It is suggested to consider the problem as a regional issue instead of considering an issue for an individual state in the region. This progress may buttress the process of bringing policy makers on one podium, which may help designing future vision of strategies on how to deal with the issues cost effectively.

Keywords: Greenhouse gases, emissions, Carbon Dioxide
