A woman grazes animals close to Al-Bu Hussain village which sits on the bank of a former canal which has dried up, in Diwaniya, Iraq, November 8, 2022. "Climate change is a reality in Iraq," said the United Nations mission in Iraq, adding that the country was the world's fifth most vulnerable to the fallout from global warming due to rising temperatures, lower rainfall, salinity, and dust storms. "Desertification now threatens almost 40 percent of the area of our country - a country that was once one of the most fertile and productive in the region," Iraq's President Abdul Latif Rashid told the climate summit in Egypt last week.

Taha Yassin, 46, stands inside the deserted home of his neighbour, Hedyya Ouda who's family have left the village of Al-Bouzayyat, in Diwaniya, Iraq, November 8, 2022. "The village is empty," said Hedyya Ouda, one of the few remaining residents when Reuters visited her in October. Hedyya and her husband stopped growing wheat and barley three years ago because of water shortages, sold their livestock and were forced to travel about 60 km (40 miles) twice a month to buy drinking water. When Reuters returned to their village in November, both had left for the city. REUTERS/Alaa Al-Marjani SEARCH "CLIMATE MIDEAST WATER" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

Red chili peppers are seen after being submerged in rain waters during monsoon season in Kunri, Umerkot, Pakistan, October 15, 2022. Devastating floods across Pakistan in August and September after several years of high temperatures, have left chilli farmers struggling in a country heavily dependent on agriculture, where officials have estimated $40 billion of flood damages. "When I was a child, the heat was never so intense. We used to have a plentiful crop, now it has become so hot, and the rains are so scarce that our yields have dwindled," farmer Leman Raj, 40, said.
