The Arab world, as in the rest of the world, faces the problem of climate change with unprecedented effect on economic development. Although the number of effects is very large, the Arab world cannot identify them because of the difficulties of adaptation and non-climatic factors. We will see declines in agricultural crops, short vegetable seasons, disturbances in rainfall, access to groundwater will become difficult, and many unwanted aspects of health such as infectious and chronic diseases and an increase in the number of deaths. The desert sands continue to crawl into the agricultural lands and cities everywhere in the Arab world. It is our duty to think in terms of equality and justice, according to these phenomena and their effects, to our survival and that of our children (future generations), in order to reduce these effects and adapting. For this reason, each country has been given the responsibility to set its long-term Greenhouse gas emission control goals and to choose the most appropriate way. In light of the successive crises experienced by the Arab countries, especially with regard to the climate change situation and its implications for all aspects of life; human, animal and plants, it is necessary to think about the present generations and the future generations. We give them what we have seen for ourselves, in response to the principle justice and equality between them and us.
