Ideas for a Sustainable Mediterranean
The Med Dialogues +2030 is an annual conference series organised and promoted by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, the Barcelona Office of the Club of Rome, and “la Caixa” Foundation, which fosters debate on sustainable development issues in the Mediterranean region.
By giving voice to renowned experts and actors from both shores of the Mediterranean Sea and a variety of backgrounds, the Med Dialogues +2030 seek to raise greater awareness and understanding of the critical sustainability challenges faced by Mediterranean countries.
Launched in 2021 as the region was entering the “Decade of Action”, the Med Dialogues +2030 adopts each year a different approach to the implementation and achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), putting forward analyses and recommendations to contribute to building a more resilient, sustainable, prosperous, inclusive, and safer Mediterranean region by 2030.
A Changing Mediterranean Climate: When Adaptation Becomes a Priority
The third edition of the Med Dialogues +2030 aims to shed light on the pressing issues surrounding climate adaptation in the Mediterranean Basin. By bringing together experts, policymakers, activists, and stakeholders from diverse backgrounds, we seek to facilitate meaningful discussions, share knowledge, and foster innovative solutions that can help communities adapt and thrive in the face of climate challenges.
Following an introduction on the adaptation needs to the impacts of climate change in the region, the conference series adopts a territorial approach, addressing adaptation in critical Mediterranean territories such as coastal, urban, rural, and maritime areas
