  • 3. About Yemen :  Site : South Waste Arab peninsula ,it lies between Latitudes 12◦ and 23 ◦ N and Longitudes 42 ◦ and 54 ◦ E.  Area : 455,024 square km = 45,550,245 ha.  Cultivation Land : 1,240,988 ha=2.7 % Of total area .  Non suitable land :39,000,000 ha = 85.4 % of total area ( national degradation study , 2002 )  Population : 20 million (2004), Expected that Reached to 50 million(2031)in growth population 3.1, (statistical office ,2004).
  • 4. Land Resources In Yemen :  Land resources are extremely limited in Yemen.  Most Of agricultural Land is Mountain terraces.  the population density is very high in these areas.  coastal and plain lands are also limited due to water resources.  Land degradation and desertification are significant issues.  Climate change is a critical issue in Yemen .  Water is a limited resource in Yemen.
