Andy Spiess is the founder president of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Network for Drylands Research and Development (NDRD), a regional scientific organization with the core objective to establish a science-policy interface to increase response capacity and mitigate environmental change in the Arab Gulf states. Besides this honorary position, Andy’s research in pursuit of a cumulative habilitation (full professorship in Germany) is analyzing the state of human security in the GCC member states (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and United Arab Emirates) from multiple perspectives and in particular on the future implications of the environment-security nexus. This transdisciplinary approach is based on the hypothesis that declining ecosystem services will act as a driver of social destabilization and already prevailing threats to security will be further amplified. While currently concentrating on a second monograph evaluating the concept of tourism development through the lens of human security in Saudi Arabia, Andy has authored numerous scholarly articles, has a long record of voluntary academic service and serves as a reviewer in several peer-reviewed journals.
