The Center for Mediterranean Integration (CMI) is pleased to present its latest report on “Climate Change and Migration: Inspiring Practices from the Mediterranean.”
The report compiles and analyzes inspiring local solutions to the challenges of climate change and its effects on migration through territorial resilience in the Mediterranean region.It focuses on the challenges of internal (within the country) climate migration, rather than cross-border, and on the responses within territories of “in” and “out” migration.
It covers topics such as food security, coastal management, nature-based solutions, and infrastructure among others.
Ten case studies from Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Spain and Tunisiaillustrate the integral relationship between climate change and migration at different territorial levels: urban, rural, coastal, etc.
The report features contributions from several institutional partners of the Center for Mediterranean Integration: International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM), UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ), International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), Medcities, United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the World Bank.
The report is intended to serve as a knowledge and experience sharing toolfor national governments, local authorities, planning professionals and civil society members. It was designed to act as a “living depository” of inspiring practices and will be regularly updated as new elements emerge. Suggestions regarding possible additional case studies and comments on lessons for further research sections are most welcome and may be forwarded via email to dharake@worldbank.org
