11 November, 15:00 -16:30 (Ziz Room, Green zone): “Strengthening Climate Risk Monitoring: A Method for Assessing Coastal Risk at Different Scales for the Mediterranean ”
The Mediterranean region is a climate change “hot spot” and it is essential to evaluate the role of climatic and non-climatic factors on coastal areas to understand the underlying risks and identify appropriate response measures. The session organized by Plan Bleu and MedSea Foundation had as main objective to present the development of a Coastal Risk Index and the results of its implementation throughout the Mediterranean basin and for local studies (including the coastal zone of Tetouan in Morocco and the Var in France). This session demonstrated in what extent the Coastal Risk Index is a robust tool that supports decision-making in adaptation to climate change in the Mediterranean coastal zone and its potentiality to be applied to other regions in the world.
15 Novembre, 19:00-20:30 (Green zone) : “ Towards a Sustainable Mediterranean Economy “
16 november: ” MedClimate Day ». Organised by ENERGIES 2050 and its partners Plan Bleu and FEMISE/ Institut de la Méditerranée, this event was the opportunity to announce the publication of the “ Climate change challenges in the Mediterranean: turning constraints into opportunities for action”. Furthermore, the speech of Anne-France DIDIER, Director of Plan Bleu, helped in showing how UNEP/MAP could support this MedCopClimat initiative in its development, notably through the academic, NGO, businesses, civil society and collectivities networks with which Plan Bleu and the other Regional Activities Centers work to develop strategic frameworks, such as pilot operations and flagship initiatives facilitating tangible progresses in the field. The Mediterranean Strategy for Sustainable Development (MSSD), the Regional Climate Change Adaptation Framework, the Integrated Coastal Zone Management Protocol , the Specially Protected Areas and Biological Diversity Protocol and the Action Plan on Sustainable Consumption and Production were thus presented.
