Abstract: This study aims to describe the meteorological conditions of the Bouregreg watershed, in order to answer the problematic dealing with the effect of climatic fluctuations on the forest resources, and also to describe the meteorological conditions of the sites favorable to the development of the forests, in order to address the issue dealing with the effect of climate fluctuations and climate change on the forest in the Bouregreg watershed, using climatological characterization, remote sensing and modeling in the study area. The work done is likely to further contribute to forest research, planning and integrated natural resource management. The adoption of modeling could help alert and drought and quantify areas at risk of desertification and fire in advance by forest management. Assessing the potential impacts of climate change on the forest and assessing the vulnerability of this sector is essential. The purpose of this work is to assess vulnerability in order to identify current impacts and threats and to identify strategies, policies and actions to address climate variability and change as well as to reduce the impacts and future vulnerability of these changes.
