Adaptation Strategies for the Mediterranean

Mediterranean countries have started implementing adaptation to climate change for a decade. This chapter aims to draw a panorama of this current adaptation effort in contrasted contexts of action – typically developed and developing countries. It identifies and discusses early developments of this endeavor, demonstrating its fragmentation and relative lack of ambition. It highlights current disconnections between practice and theory, and insists on the current minimal use of climate information in designing adaptation measures. It finally builds on the analysis of Mediterranean adaptation practices to provide guiding principles for the future elaboration of adaptation strategies in the region, focusing on timing, integration, and contextualization
