This study explores levels of concern about the environment in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Data for the study were obtained from the 2019 'Levels of Concern about the Environment in the UAE' survey. A convenience sample of 1520 respondents were selected, contacted and interviewed by research assistants. Per the study's findings, respondents did endorse three out of five dimensions of the Revised NEW Ecological Paradigm scale including the anthropocentric view of nature, balance of nature, and the possibility of eco-crisis. Nevertheless, respondents failed to support the other two dimensions of the given paradigm: limit to growth and human Exemptionalism.
