Climate Change in the Mediterranean : Socio-economic Perspectives of Impacts, Vulnerability and Adaptation

Type: International
Authors: Carlo Giupponi, Mordechai Shechter
Publisher: Edward Elgar, Series on Economics and the Environment
Date: 2003


Recent scientific research on the Mediterranean indicates that climate change will exacerbate many of the area's existing problems, including desertification, water scarcity and limits to food production. Changes in weather patterns and average temperatures are also likely to introduce new threats to human health and natural ecosystems. The authors in this significant new book identify the possible impacts and scenarios, and then define practical strategies for adapting to, and mitigating, the effects of climate change from an integrated socio-economic perspective.
