Résumé
In arid countries, water scarcity is a major challenge for development. The challenge is high when it is also affected by climate change. Climate change has had a profound effect on the Middle East and has led to a rise in temperature, a drop in rainfall, and droughts and heat waves in recent years. The 2008 Stockholm World Water Week and the third Water World Development Report (WDR) concluded that “The main impacts of climate change on humans and the environment occur through water”. Oman is classified as ranging from arid to semi-arid areas which are characterized by a hot dry environment, with little rain that is highly variable in terms of quantity and time, and is highly affected by climate change.
