The countries of West Asia and North Africa (WANA) have long had
the challenge of providing sustainable livelihoods for their
populations in the fragile ecosystems of semi-arid and arid areas.
Climate change is already a reality in WANA and it places
additional constraints on the already fragile ecosystems of dry
areas and limited natural resources in WANA. A comprehensive and
integrated approach to planning and implementing the climate change
adaptation strategies across the wide range of agro-ecosystems in
different countries in WANA could help both the planners and the
local communities to deal effectively with the projected impacts
and also contribute to overall sustainability of agricultural
production systems. This book addresses the important issue of
climate change and food security in West Asia and North Africa and
presents the appropriate strategies which could help in the
development of new policies to better adapt agriculture production
systems and enhance food security in WANA.
