On 18 November the Ministry of Environment, Urbanisation and Climate Change of Türkiye organized at the Mediterranean Pavilion the event entitled “Climate Change and Mediterranean; Accelerating the joint efforts for Our Mediterranean”.

Climate change in the Mediterranean: the average temperature in the Mediterranean basin is increasing by 20 per cent compared to the global average, the sea level has risen by 6 cm in the Mediterranean over the past two decades, and the acidity of seawater has increased significantly. The water temperature of the Mediterranean Sea is expected to increase by 1-4 °C in 2100.
