Temperatures in Middle East and Central Asia Double the Global Average

According to an International Monetary Fund report released Wednesday, temperatures in the Middle East and Central Asia have risen 1.5 degrees Celsius since the 1990s, double the global average.

A report published by Reuters warns that the region is on the front lines of a climate crisis.

Additionally, food security and public health are at risk, and the risk of poverty and conflict is increasing.

On an average year this century, climate disasters in the Middle East and Central Asia have resulted in the injury and displacement of seven million people.

Consequently, this has caused more than 2,600 deaths and $2 billion in physical damage, the report said.

Earlier, regional media wrote that bioenergy could discover a new genetic pathway that would be very useful for better processing of biofuels, making it cheaper and environmentally friendly.
