Outline
  • Methodology
  • Basic climatic information for Vulnerability
    Measures
  • Vulnerability due to Warming
  • Vulnerability due to Dryness
  • Vulnerability due to losses of Fertile Lands
  • Assessments of Emissions
  • Measures to facilitate Adequate Adaptation to
    Climate Change in Agricultural Sector

Vulnerabilities Assessment
  • Methodology
  • 1- Overview of the first National Communication.
  • 2- Definition of causes relevant study aspects
    to vulnerabilities .
  • 3- Relations between physical mechanisms
    impacts.
  • 4- Information on the role of the institutions
    involved the process of data collection
    archiving.
  • 5- Specification of Response strategies.

4
Basic climatic information for Vulnerability
Measures
  • 1- Vulnerability due to warming.
  • 2- Vulnerability due to Dryness.
  • 3- Vulnerability due to losses of agricultural
    lands.
  • 4- Vulnerabilities due to increased activity of
    insects spreading of plant diseases.
  • 5- Problems of agricultural waste disposal.

Temperature Trend Coefficient on Annual scale)

6
Vulnerability due to Dryness(Distribution of
Relative Humidity Trend Coefficient on Annual
scale)

7
Vulnerability due to losses of Fertile Lands

Assessments of Emissions
  • The following procedures will be followed
  • 1- Description of the source sink categories,
    methodologies, emission factors activity data
    used in their estimation of emissions.
  • 2- Tabulation of the GHG emission values from
    different sources different sectors.
  • 3- Identification of the areas where data may be
    further improved in future communication through
    capacity building.
  • 4- Definitions of the levels of uncertainty
    methods of increasing precision.

9
Measures to facilitate Adequate Adaptation to
Climate Change in Agricultural Sector (EGYPT)
  • 1- Protection of the Northern coast of EGYPT.
  • 2- Preference of vegetable cultivation in the
    areas near sea coast, since the roots of crops
    trees due to intrusion of saline water.
  • 3- Preference of diversified farms with more than
    one crop to increase the ability to cop with
    drought.

Continued
  • 4- Farms with trees planted strategically between
    crops could be a good solution for saving shade
    sequestration of excess CO2 .
  • 5- Variation of crop distribution , replacement
    with new crops that can bear additional warming
    could be another solution to adaptation in EGYPT
    to Climate Change.
  • 6- Changing of Irrigation systems in Egypt to
    save evaporated water.
