Bell Work Copy and answer the following question into yournotebook:Describe the early peoples of North Africa.

Managing Resources1. Much water in North Africa is used for irrigation,allowing for continued food production2. Most of the freshwater in the area comes from rivers,oases, and aquifers3. Desalination removes salt from ocean water to make itusable4. Libya’s Great Man-Made River supplies freshwater tothe country, but could possibly drain aquifers andcause them to be replaced with salt water from theMediterranean Sea

Human Impact1. Oil and fishing are very profitable economic sectors inthe region2. Mass tourism is another cause of ecological lossbecause of increased water usage in hotels, swimmingpools, and golf courses3. Oil spills have occurred on land or on the seas becauseof the lack of safety precautions4. Egypt’s Aswan High Dam controls the Nile River’s floodsand created Lake Nasser

Addressing the Issues1. The Middle East and North African countries (MENA)hold about 61% of the world’s oil reserves2. The Partnership for African Fisheries (PAF) is working tostrengthen the fishing industry and enforce stricterregulations to prevent overharvesting3. A joint authority encourages cooperation between Egyptand Libya in managing the Nubian Sandstone AquiferSystem4. The World Bank is looking to invest in modern irrigationpractices to address the needs of agriculture

Bell Work Copy and answer the following question into yournotebook:How has history influenced the society and culture ofthe Eastern Mediterranean today?

Managing Resources andHuman Impact1. Overfishing, contamination, rising surface temperature, andinvasive spies have caused environmental damage to theMediterranean Sea2. Air pollution is a problem because of high levels ofurbanization and immigration to the area3. Air pollutants have been linked to health hazards, resultingin many cases of respiratory diseases4. Long-term deforestation and desertification have contributedto climate change and soil erosion5. Agriculture is one of Israel’s most highly developed economicactivities despite the lack of freshwater6. Desalination plants and water recycling programs providewater for human use and agricultural irrigation

Addressing the Issues1. The Israeli Clean Air Law provides framework for reducingair pollution by imposing responsibilities on national andlocal gov’ts and the country’s industrial plants2. The Ministry of the Environment in Lebanon launched aproject towards sustainable management of marine/coastalbiodiversity3. Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature (RSCN)manages natural resources of Jordan; has outlawedsemiautomatic hunting weapons in Jordan4. The United Nations Development Program (UNDP), theWorld Wildlife Fund (WWF), and the International Union forthe Conservation of Nature (IUNC) address desertification,unsustainable water extraction and use, biodiversity andhabitat loss, and threats to sensitive marine ecosystems
