Exploring climate change impacts on Mediterranean coastal wetlands: risks and challenges
For wetland managers
May 19, 2022
This webinar is the 5th of the series of online webinars that aim to stimulate knowledge sharing and managers’ participation while addressing various topics and challenges related to wetland conservation and management in the Mediterranean region.
The webinars are organized by MedWet under the MAVA OAP M3 project: “Disseminating knowledge and sharing experience for promoting wetlands conservation around the Mediterranean”.
The webinar, attended by 32 participants, explored the relevant processes to describe ongoing and future climate change and its effects, including key findings from recent IPCC reports, the impact on water resources and implications for sustainable water uses in the Mediterranean basin.
They also learned about nature-based solutions and how they can help coastal communities prepare for, cope with, and recover from natural hazards related to climate change.
The sessions were led by three experts on wetland-related issues from the Mediterranean region:
- Antonio Trabucco, Scientific researcher at the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC)
- Alessio Satta, MedWet Coordinator and Climate change researcher
- Flavio Monti, Manager of the Scientific and Technical Network of MedWet
