Ecology of arid ecosystems and climate risks

In addition, the characterized aridity, arid and semi arid regions are increasingly faced with extreme phenomenon (droughts, heat waves, sand storm, torrential rains...) Which increases their vulnerability.

Also, the "Ecology of arid ecosystems and climate risks" division must strive to develop knowledge o about these phenomena, their spatiotemporal and modeling with the major objective of their prevention.

Strategic axis: monitoring and study of extreme climate phenomenon

Targets objective: monitoring and study the climate risks

  • Drought
  • Heat Wave
  • Strong winds and sand storms
  • Exceptional precipitations

Expected results :

  • Database constitution
  • Modeling
  • Development of early alert systems and adaptation strategies
