The Sinai Desert has seen temperatures rise by 0.7 degrees centigrade in the last 100 years as a result of climate change. In some respects existing deserts are more resistant to the impacts of climate change as the ecosystems have adapted to very unpredictable rainfall. As climate change advances we are seeing the spread of desert like conditions north across the Mediteranean to areas where the local populations and agriculture are not adapted to such hot dry conditions. In the Sinai The local Bedouin Arabs are superbly adapted to the hot dry desert conditions and may suffer less than their neighbour's across the Mediteranean basin.
