عنوان مقاله [English]
The relation between climate changes, agricultural policies, and water crisis with national and international security has become the subject of great concern among international organizations, research institutes, and independent scholars. This crisis could cause a chain of other crises such as energy, water, and food crisis in national, regional, and international level. It could also affect the function and stability of the whole system. Syria is one of the countries which has been affected harshly by current climate changes in the Middle East in the past two decades. Alongside historical, political, and economic factors that contributed in formation of Syria’s crisis, agriculture and water crises also played a devastating and powerful role; but have not received enough attention. The aim of the current article is to focus on 2006-2010 drought and evaluate the role of the Syrian governments’ agricultural polices as well as climate changes and food scrutiny as an important factor in the increasing of objections among Syrian citizens.
