dc.descriptionThis booklet summarizes their discussions and their recommendations, and presents some of the issues involved in predicting climate change and its effects. It will focus on the Mediterranean - why it is important, why it is vulnerable, and what hardships the region will face in the next century. It will then consider how climate change will affect various Mediterranean subsystems - the soil, fresh water, the coasts and the sea - citing specific examples throughout the region. Discussion were based on the assumption that a temperature increase of 1.5°C and a sea level rise of 20 cm will take place in the Mediterranean by the year 2025. This was thought to be a conservative estimate.en_US
