Nearharad

The Lands of Near Harad including Umbar, Harondor and lower Khand

Nahharad

the eastern parts of Near-Harad in T.A. 3019

The lands of Near Harad (S."Nevharad"; Har."Harwan") were ruled by the sun. Along the great rivers of the country countless peasants tilled soil as rich as any in Middle-earth, raising bountiful crops of grain and feeding the people of numerous towns and cities. But the sun that drew an abundant life from this soil punished those who forgot its power. Heat and barren desert could slay the unwary; life and death in Near Harad began and ended with water. Armies moved from rivers to springs to wells to oasis pools, or defeated themselves without giving battle. Foolish adventurers who wandered into the desert without provision would perish of thirst and hunger as surely as someone running unarmed into a troll cave.

Near-Harad itself was divided into four major Lands, often rival realms: Umbar, Haruzan, Chelkar and Pezarsan, sometimes also Harmaka (Harondor), Arysis and Siakan were counted to the Lands of Near-Harad. In the late third Age all of Near-Harad was also known as Harwan.
