Qatar’s successful exploitation of its natural gas resources has been a cornerstone of its rise as a global energy power. Despite progress in diversification, the energy sector remains a primary driver of Qatar’s economy, which makes it integral in any assessment of future sustainability. Qatar’s future sustainability and the role of its energy sector must be evaluated in light of global changes, such as the shift to renewables, carbon neutrality, and changing geopolitics. This chapter seeks to engage with global trends and provide a sustainability perspective for Qatar. Reflections are made on changes occurring within the European Union and East Asia, and how Qatar can position itself to capitalize on these trends.
