As global warming is definitely on the threshold of each country worldwide, MENA region has developed energy efficiency policies. The dissertation handles with the impact of the temperature increase in the building sector of the region that has high cooling needs due to its warm climate. The majority of MENA countries have started their green efforts upon built environment. Among Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates that are the countries with an already developed green building standard, the first two are those that present the most integrated examples. As they face some common constraints in the enforcement and the implementation of their codes, such as low institution assistance, lack of public and professional awareness etc., a common compliance path can be followed. However, scenarios of energy savings in residential building sector up to 2030, indicated differences in their particular needs due to different economic and social growth of each country.
