Increasing resilience to climate change in the agricultural sector in the Middle East: the cases of Jordan and Lebanon

Source(s):  World Bank, the (WB)

This report aims to assist decision-makers in Jordan and Lebanon in understanding the specific challenges and opportunities posed by climate change in the agricultural sector and to develop local-level priorities, informed by stakeholder input, in order to build agricultural resilience in the two countries. The report is divided into four chapters: (i) chapter one introduces the background of the study and the structure of the report; (ii) chapter two provides a synthesis of evidence of climate variability and change in Jordan and Lebanon; (iii) chapter three explains the methodology of the study and presents the study's findings in the two countries; and (vi) chapter four concludes the report and provides policy options to combat food insecurity, rural poverty, water-related constraints, urbanization and the resulting loss of farmland, and the vulnerability of rural populations to climate change.
