Explore historical and projected climate data, climate data by sector, impacts, key vulnerabilities and what adaptation measures are being taken. Explore the overview for a general context of how climate change is affecting Qatar.

Climate Data Projections

The climate science community sources a suite of models to inform decision makers on future climate. Among the most widely used are GCMs (Global Climate Models or Earth System models) that capture the non-linear complexity of the Earth to represent changes across the climate system for key processes and contexts.

Key Trends:


  • Mean annual temperature is projected to increase by 2°C by 2050.


  • Mean annual precipitation is projected to decrease by 5% by 2050.
  • The maximum amount of rainfall in any 5-day period (a surrogate for an extreme storm event) is projected to increase and the maximum period between rainy days is expected to decrease.

The section below allows you to explore further climate indices derived from GCMs used in IPCC reports by different timeframes, statistics, emission scenarios, and models in map and charts.
