News COP27 UNFCCC | the MEDITERRANEAN PAVILION | 6-18 November 2022

For the first time in history, COP27 (6-18 Nov, 2022) hosted  a Mediterranean Pavilion, seeking to highlight both the urgent challenges the region faces, and the innovative solutions already being developed.  The Mediterranean Pavilion is a coalition of like-minded partners: the Union for the Mediterranean, the PRIMA Foundation, and UNEP–MAP, along with a group of relevant organisations and a scientific committee, led by the Mediterranean Experts on Climate and environmental Change (MedECC) network, which gathers 600 scientists, and who produced the first scientific assessment on climate and environmental change in the region. Following a summer dominated by climate and environmental emergencies across the region, and within the context of a global climate crisis, the Mediterranean area faces challenges of its own that can lead to regional instability: extremely severe and accelerated impact – it is the planet’s second fastest warming region (warming 20% faster than the global average)– overlapping with a dangerous socio-economic asymmetry and lack of integration. But the Mediterranean is also a hub for emerging solutions – public policies and private initiatives - that can serve as a blueprint for similar efforts to be scaled up globally. All the session of the Mediterranean Pavilion are available here.
