'Not adapting to climate change means massive failure for Egypt’s economy' - expert

Source(s):  Al-Masry Al-Youm

"The results we achieved showed that not adapting to climate change would cost the Egyptian economy up to LE180 billion, a figure estimated over the next 25 years" said Mahmoud Medani, Egyptian expert on climate change and agriculture in an interview with Al-Masry Al-Youm. The interview highlights the additional pressures on land and water.

Medani was part of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) team that published the Fourth Assessment Report, 'Climate Change 2007', which shared the Nobel Prize with Al Gore in 2007.
