This is the second volume in a series of books recording the results of studies on the impact of climate change on the ecologic systems and socio-economic structures of the Mediterranean region.

Incorporating five entirely new case studies (Rhodes, Kastela Bay, Malta, the Syrian coast, and the Cres/Losinj Islands), an international team of experts organized by the United Nations Environment Programme has produced a comparative analysis of eleven case studies which offer a broad overview of likely future climatic change impacts on the Mediterranean coastline.
