Land Governance, Natural Resources and Climate Change in the Arab Region

  • Function : Author

Abstract

The Arab region, mostly arid and semi-arid, is one of the most vulnerable regions to the adverse effects of climate change. It experiences rising temperatures, expanding aridity, changing lengths of seasons, rising sea levels and increasingly saline coastal areas, as well as natural hazards such as flooding, droughts and wildfires. Human-induced triggers relating to unsustainable management add to these challenges: overgrazing, monocultures, unregulated urbanization, unchecked commercialization and speculation over land resources. The result of climate change and harmful human behaviour contribute to the degradation of land and natural resources and negatively affect ecosystems and biodiversity. The impact on people is severe, particularly those who live off the land and depend on natural resources and ecosystem services for their livelihoods.
