Climate change is a threat multiplier in the Mediterranean region, posing pressing challenges to food and water security, generating economic hardship, displacements, and human suffering. In the lead-up to the COP27 in Egypt, this dialogue highlights the human security implications of climate change in the Mediterranean, thus making the case for increased commitments and accelerated actions against climate change to be taken at the COP27.
