Focus: climate adaptation in the Mediterranean basin

UNEP/MAP (Mediterranean Action Plan), co-organiser of the Mediterranean Pavilion at COP27, discusses “Coastal adaptation across the Mediterranean: solutions driven by cities networks”.
on 12 November at 11:15. The event is organised by the Ocean & Climate Platform and Plan Bleu, Regional Activity Center of UNEP/MAP, the round table aims to mobilise the actors involved in the adaptation of coastal cities in the Mediterranean basin.
Indeed, the Mediterranean region is subject to a number of risks due to climate change, such as rising sea levels. Although some responses have already been put in place many challenges still stand in the way of cities adapting.
The Mediterranean basin is a complex region characterised by a relatively high degree of heterogeneity. The lack of a cohesive approach is particularly evident when it comes to coastal adaptation to climate change.

Therefore, drawing on regional experience and expertise has the potential to unlock adaptive capacities and collectively improve the basin's resilience to climate change.
Regional cooperation could support an integrated local approach that draws on territorial solidarity and takes into account local specificities to develop tailor-made adaptation strategies. 

 This event aims to take stock of the complex situation in the Mediterranean region and to propose solutions to improve the resilience of cities and coastal territories.
Several city networks and coastal adaptation experts will share their experiences and present the variety of concrete actions and initiatives implemented in the region, as well as identify priorities for action to accelerate climate adaptation.


Appointment on 12 November at 11.15 am at the Mediterranean Pavilion.
