Yemen National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) Official Document - April 2009


Yemen is highly vulnerable to climate change-related impacts such as drought, extreme flooding, pests, sudden disease outbreaks, changes of rainfall patterns, increased storm frequency/severity and sea level rise. These are serious concerns as Yemen's economy largely depends on its rural natural resources. Moreover, more than 75% of the population is rural-based engaged in farming and pastoralism and hence highly reliant on favorable climatic conditions for their livelihoods. Yemen's NAPA identifies priority sectors and establishes target projects for climate change adaptation.
