View Report

he objective of this seminar is to address the particular problems that Muslim societies are likely to face as a result of climate change, and to identify the role that an Islamic perspective can play in developing a global response to climate change. This seminar is hosted in conjunction with the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, and was held at their office on George Street, Oxford, on 24 July 2006. It brought together a range of scholars and practitioners to address three main questions: * What are the major impacts of climate change likely to be for the majority of Muslim societies? * What is or could be unique about an Islamic perspective in addressing climate change? * How does that perspective relate to and integrate with other major perspectives around the world?
