North Afrika

North Africa is highly vulnerable to climatic influences on ecosystems in both rural and urban areas. Climate change will drastically exacerbate existing problems such as heat waves, droughts, water scarcity. Furthermore, population growth results in exploitation of natural resources like water and open space while resilience of ecosystems is limited.
