Abstract

This study aims to be relevant for the MENA region as a whole, but it focuses on five countries - Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, Syria, and Yemen, and in many (but not all) cases on specific geographic areas within each of the five countries. After a brief introduction, this chapter outlines the reasons that led to the choice of the five focus countries. Next, to provide contextual background for the study, the chapter provides an introductory discussion of climate and migration patterns in each of the five countries, and of the policy and institutional context in which discussions on climate change take place.
