THE DYNAMIC OF WATER RESOURCES IN NORTH-EASTERN MOROCCO BETWEEN REALITY AND EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE : CASE OF THE TARIFA PLAIN
 
The issue of climate change today has become one of the issues that receive increasing attention on the part of the global system, due to its disastrous effects at all levels, and this is due to human and natural factors, including the southern bank of the Mediterranean which has not been excluded from, especially the Tarifa Plain in the far northeast of Morocco, which is one of the most important irrigated areas in the country due to its great contribution to agricultural production and its reliance on achieving economic and social development in the region. However, its climate during the last six decades has witnessed clear variations in the rates of precipitation and temperature, whether annual or monthly, or even seasonal and daily. This increases the severity of the climatic drought, which in turn affects water resources. Therefore, it is imperative that great efforts must be made to limit the effects of these changes in light of the excessive depletion of water in the agricultural sector. Through this intervention, we aim to highlight the climatic changes that occurred on the Tarifa Plain, and their repercussions on its water resources, and how to adapt these changes to achieving sustainable development for the studied area.

Keywords: Climate Change, Water Resources, Tarifa Plain, Development, Environment.
