UfM Climate Action Leaflet
The Mediterranean region has been identified as one of the main climate change hotspots in the world. It faces huge climate‑related vulnerabilities, such as extreme weather events, an increase of desert areas and the rise of sea level. These phenomena are impacting the quality of the air we breathe, the access to freshwater resources, the land availability for agriculture and livestock, urban infrastructures and tourism. In this context, the Union for the Mediterranean acts as a unique platform to facilitate and promote regional dialogue and cooperation as well as concrete projects and initiatives in the field of Climate Action in order to deal with the climate change challenges affecting the region.
