Content Details - November-December 2017
236-237 8/11/2017
This month, this year
In the beginning of 2017, the magazine "Environment and Development" became electronic after twenty years of its publication on paper. The magazine continued to publish monthly on the Internet, with daily news and commentary attracting millions of followers. Today, a special paper edition is published on the occasion of the 10th Annual Report of the Arab Forum for Environment and Development (AFD) entitled "The Arab Environment in 10 Years".
This issue includes the main content of the annual report on the state of the Arab environment and the results of the public opinion poll conducted by the Forum in 22 countries. But it also brings together a selection of the most prominent topics published electronically on the magazine's website during 2017, and a presentation of the most important environmental events in the Arab region and the world.
On the occasion of the birth of his tenth report, AFED remembers two founding members who played a pivotal role in the creation and progress of this initiative: Mostafa Kamal Tolba (1922 - 2016) and Maroun Semaan (1955 - 2017). Tolba was co-editor of the AFED reports series since its launch, and Semaan was behind the "Environmental Responsibility for Business" initiative. Maroun Samaan joined the Board of Trustees of the Forum since its inception. He was a member of the Executive Committee of AFED, along with Najib Saab, Mostafa Tolba, Adnan Badran and Abdulrahman Al Awadi, and remained active in the Forum until the disease stole him early.
Mostafa Tolba and Maroun Semaan left before they can celebrate with us the 10th AFED report on the state of the Arab environment. But their impact will not be lost.
