Climate Knowledge for Regional Coastal Stakeholders in the Eastern Baltic Sea Region

TimeLoc
24 October 2011
Szczeczin, Gdansk, Klaipeda, Riga

How do decision makers in Poland and the Baltic states perceive climate change and climate change adaptation? What impact will climate change have in coastal regions, and how can stakeholders there prepare themselves? What information is available to them? What programs have already been implemented?

Review of Policies on Climate Change, Water Conflicts and Human Security

Using a case study approach, selected policies have been reviewed in specific countries in the Mediterranean, Middle East and Sahel region region; case studies of individual strategies and initiatives were also conducted at the United Nations and European Union level. As the case studies have shown, very few policies today explicitly address the link between climate change, water, human security and conflict or cooperation. Of the few policies that explicitly address the link, most are located at the international level. However, at the national level, some adaptation and sectoral policies do address risks for human security linked to water and climate change in more indirect manners, such as water user associations in Egypt or an agricultural insurance scheme in Turkey.Read more
