1.
How vulnerable
is Lebanon
Future climate risks
Moderate case scenario – mid century
▣ 1.2˚C warming and up to 3.2°C by 2100
▣ 4% decrease in precipitation, up to 5.8
mm decrease in average monthly
precipitation
▣ Temperature and precipitation extremes
will also intensify causing the seasonal
prolongation and geographical expansion
of drought periods
▣ 15 additional days with maximum daily
temperature higher than 35°C
Impacts on Lebanon
▣ Less snow
▣ Less water availability
▣ Increase drought period
▣ Less agriculture productivity
▣ Higher energy demand
▣ Weakened tourism
▣ Sea level rise
▣ Forests at risk
▣ Increased mortality and morbidity
▣ Damaged infrastructure
Economic costs from climate change
impacts in 2040
Potential costs from cumulative effects of global GHG emissions
Potential savings in 2040 from reducing global GHG emissions to
the lowest emissions scenario
What about agriculture?
▣ The effects of climate change on five main
crop types: cereals, fruit trees, olives, industrial
crops, such as sugar beets and tobacco, and
vegetables, such as potatoes (a strategic crop).
