English term or phrase: highland plains / arid lowland areas [URGENT]
Does anyone know the exact translation of these words? (the context is a political text):

- "For the purpose of this analysis, the area of ... may be split into six ecosystem types: Marine and Coastal Zone, Arid Lowland Areas (the northern coast), Moist Lowland Areas (the southern coast), Mountainous Areas, Highland Plains, and Urban Areas"

Thank you in advance
