Iraq is highly vulnerable to climate change and its impacts.
The country’s vulnerability is shaped by its physical exposure,
a strong natural resource dependency and low adaptive capacity
due to violent conflict, poverty, political instability and corruption.
Iraq is particularly exposed to floods, droughts and dust storms,
increasingly linked to temperature and precipitation variability.
