State-of-play on climate in the Mediterranean: 2018 UfM Climate Week in Barcelona
23-25 April 2018, Barcelona. The Mediterranean region is one of the world’s climate change hotspots where the rise of temperature by 1.5°C, compared to pre-industrial levels, the lower limit not to be surpassed as agreed through the Paris Agreement, is at risk of being exceeded in the coming years. The UfM Climate Week taking place these days in Barcelona is gathering a wide range of actors (UfM members, UNFCCC -United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change- and European Union representatives, youth networks, international financial institutions, scientific experts…) around different topics, all related to climate action in the Mediterranean region. It’s the opportunity to create and enhance synergies among them and to enrich the discussions and exchanges on climate change challenges in the Mediterranean region.
