Said Al-Saqri, Hameed Sulaiman
Journal of Environmental Protection (JEP) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jep.2014.59076
Abstract:

Establishing environmental institutions will aid in providing effective responses on any changes in the status of environment by improving the current policies by having solid management strategies to combat environmental degradation. All the six member countries in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) have established similar environmental institutional bodies that serve with the mandate of conserving and protecting the environment. Degrees of implementation, wealth, state of environment reporting and strategic planning are varying and closer inspection has to be done. Institutionalization in GCC states has to be promoted to cover major framework of sustainable development strategies. This will guarantee the use-effectiveness of those polices and other environmental management tools to ensure sustainable development of the natural resources. This paper attempts to list and examine the current status of all GCC country’s environment institutional framework and setup through comparison of the available information, highlighting the achievement of some and providing some guidance for others on how it could be enhanced.

WIND ENERGY MAP OF ARABIAN GULF  [PDF]
Khaled Al-Salem, Subramaniam Neelamani, Waleed Al-Nassar
Natural Resources (NR) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/nr.2018.95014
Abstract:
Wind power is not only pollution free and renewable but is becoming more economical with technology development. The countries around the Arabian Gulf region are investing for wind powers both the land and in their marine space. A detailed study on wind power resource in the Arabian Gulf is not available. This paper is on the wind energy resource availability over Arabian Gulf waters, covering 2300 grid points. The data available with Coastal Information System data base at Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research, Kuwait, from 1979 to 2015 is used. The probability density and power density were derived from these data source. Weibull probability density function has been fitted to the wind speed data and the wind power density was evaluated. The study is carried out at 10 m, 30 m and 50 m elevations. The central location of the Arabian Gulf has higher annual average wind speed, ranging from 6 to 8 m/s at 10 m elevation, 7 to 8 m/s at 30 m elevation and 8 to 9 m/s at 50 m elevation. The scale parameter c at central location of Arabian Gulf is found to range from 6 - 8 m/s for 10 m elevation, 7

Mani Shehni Karamzadeh,Ong Hway Boon
Research Journal of Applied Sciences, Engineering and Technology , 2013,
Abstract: This study evaluates the effects of financial development factors and other important factors based on Solow’s model over the economic growth in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. The panel data from 1986-2009 is used in this research. For analyzing the data, pooled OLS model, random effect model and fixed effect model are used by using E-views software. To distinguish between pooled OLS model and random effect model, LM test is run and to differentiate between random effect model and fixed effect model, the Hausman test is run. The results reveal that financial development which is measured by PRIVY is not significant in all the models that have been suggested. Nevertheless, the financial development, which is measured by the LLY, has a positive and significant sign in some of the models that have been offered.
GCC Economic Integration Challenge and Opportunity for Malaysian Economy
Asmak Binti Ab Rahman,Mohd Fauzi Bin Abu-Hussin
Journal of International Social Research , 2009,
Abstract: Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) is the largest economic group in the Middle East region and ranks at number 17th in the global economy. The establishment of GCC Custom Union in 2003 has attracted a number of economic groups such as European Union (EU) as well as individual countries to deal with the GCC as an economic group. As a custom union, it requires to the interested parties to deal with GCC as a bunch. Malaysia, apart from religious affinity, has significant economic relation with the group. The economic tie between Malaysia and GCC has been remarkable particularly on trade, oil sources as well as investment opportunities for Malaysia. At the same time, recent development shows that, the GCC nations also investing and participating in Malaysian economy and this contributing considerably its economic growth. Given this background, the objectives of this paper are first to analyse GCC economic condition from Malaysian perspective and secondly to highlight the economic co-operation at the intra-regional level between GCC and Malaysia. In doing so, this paper will particularly look into the trends, level and few other aspects of its trade and economic relation with the GCC members, and the benefit that gained by Malaysian investors as well as expatriates investing and working in this region. The findings of this paper will be analyzing toward the future relation between the GCC and Malaysia.

Haitham Al-Mahrouqi,Lianne Parkin,Katrina Sharples
Oman Medical Journal , 2011,
Abstract: Objectives: Stomach cancer is the most common cancer among males in Oman and the second most frequent among females from 1997 to 2007. Reports have suggested the rate is higher in Oman than in the other GCC countries. This study aims to describe the epidemiology of stomach cancer in Oman and to explore the apparent differences in the incidence of stomach cancer between Oman and the other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries.Methods: Data were obtained from the Omani National Cancer Registry (1997 - 2007) and from Gulf Centre for Cancer Registration reports (1998 - 2004).Results: The annual average age-adjusted incidence rates for stomach cancer in Oman were 10.1 per 100,000 for males and 5.6 per 100,000 for females between 1997 and 2007. The age-adjusted incidence varied by region within Oman, and the incidence rate was higher in Oman than in most other GCC countries between 1998 and 2004.Conclusion: Further investigation of the completeness and accuracy of cancer registration is essential for exploration of variations in stomach cancer rates in the GCC countries.

Abstract: development is mainly a political process which asks for mechanisms to affirm social needs. these mechanisms have to be regulated by norms created to confront opposite interests, deal agreements, implement actions e valuate results, all that at different spatial levels. the development founded on social deliberation claims methodologies and technics, whose formulation the territorial pacts and the development local agencies can give inspiration for. in the contexts of amazon, the reinforcement of norms would come to avoid the legge of the jungle, where the powerfull dominate the weaker ones. besides refraining abuses, the norms and methodologies also serve to promote virtuous processes related to the use of new methodologies and new social and produtive relationships. the development is therefore a problem of compatibilizazion of political ethics, technical norms and methodologies of social emancipation. does not exist universal prescriptions, but certain principles and mechanisms of the european regional politics can inspirate new pratics in amazon

Abstract: Development is mainly a political process which asks for mechanisms to affirm social needs. These mechanisms have to be regulated by norms created to confront opposite interests, deal agreements, implement actions e valuate results, all that at different spatial levels. The development founded on social deliberation claims methodologies and technics, whose formulation the territorial pacts and the development local agencies can give inspiration for. In the contexts of Amazon, the reinforcement of norms would come to avoid the legge of the jungle, where the powerfull dominate the weaker ones. Besides refraining abuses, the norms and methodologies also serve to promote virtuous processes related to the use of new methodologies and new social and produtive relationships. The development is therefore a problem of compatibilizazion of political ethics, technical norms and methodologies of social emancipation. Does not exist universal prescriptions, but certain principles and mechanisms of the european regional politics can inspirate new pratics in Amazon.
Future perspectives on territorial cooperation in Europe [Electronic resource] : the EC regulation on a European grouping of territorial cooperation and the planned Council of Europe third protocol to the Madrid outline convention concerning euroregional co-operation groupings
Engl Alice
European Diversity and Autonomy Papers - EDAP , 2007,
Abstract: The aim of this paper is to describe, analyze and compare the recent legal developments regarding territorial cooperation that can be observed on the international and supranational level in Europe: the EC Regulation on a European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation adopted in 2006, on the one hand, and the planned Third Protocol to the European Outline Convention on Transfrontier Co–operation between Territorial Communities and Authorities concerning Euroregional Co–operation Groupings of the Council of Europe, on the other hand. Which future perspectives for territorial cooperation in Europe do these two new tools open and what could be the added value of having two (rather similar) instruments? These are just two of the questions standing behind this paper, entitled “Future Perspectives for Territorial Cooperation in Europe”, which–towards its end–will eventually come back to one of the most crucial determinants for the future development of territorial cooperation in Europe, i.e. the attitude of the national states towards CBC and their respective constitutional provisions.
El Oriente Medio en la política mundial: un enfoque sistémico
Ozkan,Mehmet;
Estudios Políticos , 2011,
Abstract: the middle east has always been center of attention for its problems and economic importance to the world. the middle east is the source of a considerable amount of the world?s oil and gas and is the place where it can be most cheaply obtained. this article takes a systemic approach to understand the middle east and locate it within the global politics. in the middle east there are various institutions that connect the region to the world. these institutions have a certain degree of influence in shaping regional politics. this institutional structure is important in locating the middle east in global politics because each of them has different agenda, inclination and priories. understanding the diversity of regional organizations will also show that the middle east is not a single unity, rather it has various power centers.
