Are We Ready for the Heat? Exploring Climate Adaptation Needs in the Mediterranean 20 September 2023 - 18:00-19:45 CET

The European Institute of the Mediterranean is organizing a hybrid dialogue discussion on climate adaptation needs in the Mediterranean Basin.  The panel will focus on climate change impacts on natural resources and society, and consequently, the areas where adaptation is crucial to prevent potential damages arising from climate disruptions and to maintain the integrity of our societies, ecosystems, and environment while seizing opportunities. In addition, the dialogue questions the readiness and capacities of the Mediterranean countries.  RICCAR climate change projections will be presented in order to highlight the adaptation priorities for MENA and Mediterranean countries and communities around the basin.

This inaugural dialogue of the Med Dialogues 2030 series takes place at the CaixaForum Macaya, Pg. de Sant Joan, 108, Barcelona. Free entrance with prior registration.

About Riccar


The central aim of this Regional Knowledge Hub is to provide access to information that can facilitate cooperation, coordination, dialogue and exchange among Arab States, organizations and stakeholder and to support awareness raising as well as regional networking and exchange on issues related to climate change and water resources in the region. Access to RICCAR assessment findings and associated datasets is being made available on this Regional Knowledge Hub, which is comprised of two open-access components: a website and a data portal. This online platform complements, and builds upon, the findings and processes already presented in the main report and its technical annex, as well as the series of publications that elaborate further on the work being pursued collectively under RICCAR.
