The European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed), together with the Barcelona Office of the Club of Rome and “La Caixa” Foundation, organize a cycle of six conferences (Med Dialogues +2030) that takes place between May and November 2021.

This first session of the Med Dialogues +2030, untitled “ Climate and Environmental Change in the Mediterranean: Grasping the Scope of the Challenge” aims at setting the scene of the conference cycle by presenting the state-of-the-art situation of climate and environmental change in the Mediterranean Basin.

In this context, the framework of the 2030 Agenda offers a key blueprint for collaboration in the region to reduce the impact of climate change and environmental degradation, and advance towards a more sustainable, low-carbon, and climate-resilient development in the Mediterranean Basin.

This first session of the Med Dialogues +2030 cycle aims to analyze the current evolution and impact of change and environmental degradation factors, both natural and anthropic, in the Mediterranean climate basin. The dialogue offers a space for reflection on the future challenges of Mediterranean ecosystems and societies. Finally, the dialogue aims to discuss initiatives and concrete actions that could be applied within the framework of the 2030 Agenda to move towards more climate-resistant and sustainable development in the region.
