At a Glance
Egypt’s inhabitants rely heavily upon the Nile and the productive agricultural sector it nurtures, leaving the country vulnerable to climate shocks and transboundary water conflict. Through its long-recorded history, Egypt’s vulnerability to climatic changes has resulted in famine and political unrest during periods of drought. Egypt’s gross domestic product increased at a faster rate than emissions, which suggests that carbon intensity of the economy had decreased over that same time period.
