Biodiversity, Ecosystems, Values and Indigenous Knowledge

Ecosystems in hot and dry environments show special adaptations. Even though species diversity is not as high as in other ecosystems, their uniqueness and beauty can serve as inspiration to conserve them. Furthermore, societies in these environments have developed cultural adaptations that have allowed them to survive and thrive for generations.

Islamic values play a major role in shaping approaches to sustainability in many of these countries. It is also essential to showcase indigenous knowledge and adaptation to these environments.
