This study aims at studying the effects of climate change risks on the mud architecture in Wadi Hadramout, Yemen. The intention of this study was to contribute to mud architecture in Wadi Hadhramaut by identifying and addressing the effect of expected climate changes on mud architecture building to maintain this unique architecture and human heritage toward sustainable development. This study has concluded that climate change scenarios in Yemen, especially in Wadi Hadhramaut, indicate that a significant increase in the rated temperature in that region will appear in the fifth decade of this century. The scenarios also confirm on the expected increase in precipitation, which increases the probability of exposure to the mud architecture in the region to multiple risks and disasters that could reach the threat of the disappearance of villages and cities in Wadi Hadhramaut which contain more than 90% of the components of buildings currently made from mud architecture.
