Temperatures in the region of the Middle East are predicted to rise by almost half a degree Celsius per decade, forecasted to a study, with fierce weather events, including torrential rain and droughts, becoming more usual.

Although half a degree does not sound like a significant shift, given that temperatures in the Middle East can change by 10°C to 15°C per day, stated an IMF report in March, with 1.1°C of warming, half the worldwide population faces water insecurity for around one month every year.

Researchers in a recent study stated that the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East have, during recent decades, heated significantly faster than other regions inhabited.

They also emphasised how greenhouse gas emissions in the region were rapidly growing and, as a result, were creating a major contribution to climate change.

However, scientists stated that if significant measures were taken in the world to limit carbon emissions and battle other contributors to climate change, the rate at which temperatures persisted in rising could be slowed.

The study was written by 21 scientists in the UAE, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and European nations and reviews a host of earlier studies to specify the overall situation of climate change in the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East (EMME).

It stated that the rise in temperatures in the region till now, of around 0.45 °C per decade, was launched to persist.

The researchers stated that there would probably be an extremely rising severity and duration of severe weather conditions like droughts, heatwaves and dust storms. More torrential rainfall events are able to cause flash floods are also estimated.

Another author of the study, Professor Jos Lelieveld of the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in Mainz and The Cyprus Institute in Nicosia, showed that there was minimal space for temperatures in the Middle East to rise further and for lives not to be impacted.
