The Cost of Climate Change [5/7]... Sultanate of Oman in the Eye of the Storm

24 Nov 2021  |  العربي الجديد
Climate change is causing billion-dollar losses to Oman, threatening its natural resources and infrastructure. Despite the urgency for proactive measures to mitigate the impact, funding shortages and a lack of specialists hinder adaptation strategies. The country has faced severe cyclones, such as Shaheen in October 2021, which caused significant damage and fatalities. Studies highlight the increasing vulnerability of Oman's coastal regions to climate-induced disasters. The agricultural sector suffers from natural disasters, with cyclones devastating crops and affecting water resources. The government has launched urban development strategies to manage flood-prone areas and reduce developmental projects in vulnerable locations. Oman aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 7% by 2030, but faces challenges such as funding and the need to build national capacities to combat climate change.

Clubhouse Dominates Virtual Discussions in the Gulf

Despite being currently limited to iPhone users and not yet available for Android, the app has rapidly become a hub for discussions on politics, economy, entrepreneurship, media, arts, and more. Users appreciate the direct communication and the freedom to discuss various topics, including sensitive issues like statelessness in Kuwait and regional politics. However, Oman and the UAE have blocked the app, citing lack of official licenses from local telecommunications regulatory authorities.
