Conference Aim
The evaluation of regional climate change projections for annual mean temperatures in the
Mediterranean are likely to increases more than the global means. Beside of this,
precipitations decreased especially during winter and spring seasons. However, increasing
tendency during the last decades, extreme weather and climatic events, heat waves are
affecting the Mediterranean region.
All these changes, under the climate change concept, have brought about water stress,
changing comfort temperatures, sea level changes, increasing evaporation and drought
conditions, changing rain characteristics (seasonal and heavy rain possibilities), runoff
problem and floods, and other physical aspects of the climatic conditions. Under these
changing conditions, natural environment and human activities are at some serious risks.
Biodiversity, natural disasters, urbanization and urban heat island, agriculture, tourism,

health, education for awareness, mobility, woman and gender equality will be a main part of
adaptation issues to the climate change processes in the Mediterranean region.
Projections based on various emission scenarios and General Circulation Models (GCMs) show
that annual runoff decreases in the Mediterranean. The complexity of climate change, impacts
and adaptation needs to understand the physical, political and economic geography of these
processes, and how they relate to other social problems, including persistent poverty,
people’s vulnerability included women and children.
There are several questions which we would like to address in our conference in this regard:
What are the real threat and unfolding impacts of climate change on people (on different
groups) and settlements on various nature, city/rural, formal/informal, economic/livelihood
etc) in the Mediterranean area?
Moreover, what are their consequences for living conditions notably for vulnerable places and
people with regard to: resources, extreme flood, health, food sustainability, heat waves,
agriculture, tourism, pollution, inner climate, minorities, welfare systems and well-being,
human development and rights as well as duties, social and democratic national cohesion or
‘otherness’, solidarity, conflict, security and militarization, cooperation among countries or
Mediterranean shores?
What are the consequences for people in more or less advanced economies?
How are climate change risks events and reactions experienced in different geographical
contexts?
How are they mediated by ethnic, class, gender, political and professional cultures?
What examples and why do we have about successful change/adaptation stories?
We would like to invite geographers interested in the Mediterranean area to address scientific
challenges initially proposed in The IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) Climate Change
(2013) evaluated assessment of future climate change for the Europe and Mediterranean and
ISSC ‘Transformative Cornerstones’.
If your research deals with climate change, its effects on integrated perspective natural
environment and humanity in the Mediterranean region, we welcome your contribution to the
conference.
