Climate-water-food security nexus in The Middle East
The Middle East
The negative effects of the climate can be seen clearly in the food and water security in The Middle East. The Middle East ecosystems and lands are declining in vegetation cover and productivity from various negative factors, including climate change, industrialization, urban settlements, unsustainable use of resources, and population growth. Therefore, it is imperative to examine the potential short term and long lasting impacts that these climatological factors have on the region’s water and food security.
Our aims were to perform a comprehensive review (2000-2023) and analysis of remote sensing based studies to assess the status of the climate-food-water nexus in The Middle East, the developments in RS data types and methods used to measure dynamics of climate-food-water nexus, the measured threats to food and water security, initiatives/plans implemented at region-level to combat climate change impacts on food and water security, the impact that food and water scarcity and changes in security have on the inhabitants of The Middle East and to identify current research gaps and ways to enhance food and water security under changing climate.
Ecoresolve in collaboration with a diverse group of outstanding researchers conducted a comprehensive review and analysis of published remote sensing based studies from 2000 to 2023 focusing The Middle East climate-water-food nexus to achieve the aforementioned objectives.
Impact & Results
Ecoresolve provides recommendations based on the identified research gaps and challenges to enhance the status of The Middle East water and food security while battling the future climate change scenarios.
