The Greenpeace Research Laboratories report listed Morocco among the countries threatened by the “devastating impact of climate change” in the Middle East and North Africa, along with Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates.

Greenpeace expected that Morocco will know, like the northwestern African region, more drought and higher annual temperatures, which will affect food production.

Report’s expectations contained that the agricultural productivity rate in Morocco will decline by 2080 due to changing rainfall patterns, while the poorer population will be the most affected by salinization, as they depend on agriculture for income.

Greenpeace experts’ research warned that the threat of climate change to the Middle East and North Africa poses threat to marine and terrestrial biodiversity, and not only to water scarcity and imbalances in food security.
