In the Arab States Region, drought risk is increasing, related to increased exposure and vulnerability through population growth, pollution, conflict and insecurity, maladaptive practices like unsustainable use of water resources and unsustainable development approaches. 

‘The Arab States Drought Risk Dialogue’ will unpack the latest findings on drought risk management from the Arab States Region, as featured in the GAR Special Report on Drought 2021. It will illustrate the challenges facing transboundary cooperation around water basins in a changing climate in the region, and the urgent need for new transboundary risk governance approaches to reduce drought risk with two case studies from the region. 

GAR Special Report on Drought 2021 Summary for Policymakers is available in English and Arabic here.
