MEDPRO technical report no 26:
This report addresses the main policy relevant questions about climate change adaptation in the Mediterranean region and provides answers based on a theoretical framework applied to the case of three Mediterranean countries, namely Turkey, Egypt and Tunisia. The first sections deals with adaptation to climate change from a theoretical viewpoint, covering not only economic issues, but also fairness and international agreements on mitigation and adaptation.
The second part makes use of the conceptual framework developed in the theoretical discussion to analyse the adaptation-related situations of 11 southern and eastern Mediterranean countries (SEMCs): Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Syria, Tunisia and Turkey. Using the contributions of the theoretical framework, it explains important directions of policy intervention for adaptation in the 11 SEMCs, paying particular attention to the specific socioeconomic conditions of these countries.
