Climate change data for Iraq

Understanding the nature and characteristics of future climate and in particular drought conditions is important if adequate adaptation strategies are to be developed. Eight different data sets are provided for MENA and individual countries based on GCM-downscaling of datasets produced by modelling at ICBA or obtained from the CORDEX project. The following links show projected changes of annual conditions for two different emissions scenarios (RCP 4.5 and RCP 8.5).Click on the link to find out “How the climate change data were generated”.
