Climate change in the Mediterranean: socio-economic perspectives of impacts, vulnerability and adaptation


, : Climate change in the Mediterranean: socio-economic perspectives of impacts, vulnerability and adaptation. Climate change in the Mediterranean: socio economic perspectives of impacts, vulnerability and adaptation: 332 pp.

This book begins with a broad global overview of the probable economic and social consequences of climate change. The authors then focus on the issue of water resources and assesses a range of potential problems such as increasing droughts, adequate irrigation, reduced water quality and population migration due to severe shortages. They move on to examine issues surrounding land use including desertification, degradation, agriculture and waste management.
