Climate change, natural resource degradation and lack of inclusiveness challenge existing social contracts in the Middle East and North Africa. This think piece looks at how environmental factors influence governments’ scope of action to deliver on their duties of protection, provision and participation within current social contracts and proposes an alternative solution that can work for both people and planet.
