Environment: Between the government and the public
By Najib Saab
July/August 2001

Recently I went over the results of a survey on Arab environmental trends. The results showed that more than 90% of those included in the survey demand more strict laws to preserve the environment, even if that meant imposing some restrictions. The results also indicated that more than 80% were prepared to take personal environmentally friendly actions to contribute towards protecting the environment such as using public transportation, switching to unleaded fuel and conserving water and electricity. 77% agreed to pay taxes that are allocated to protecting the environment. Lebanon's statistics were among the best in comparison to other Arab countries, a clear indication of the public's increasing environmental awareness.
