Abstract: "Dry areas occupy over 95 percent of the total lands of West Asia and North Africa (WANA) region. The area is dominated by a Mediterranean-type climate characterized by cool and rainy winters and temperate dry summers. Mediterranean sub-climates are usually differentiated by the length of the summer drought period and the temperatures during winter and summer."
