MedECC Coordinating Lead Authors meeting

The MedECC’s present work focuses on three special reports related to specific challenges identified in the First Mediterranean Assessment Report (MAR1):

  1. Special Report on coastal risks,
  2. Special Report on climate – water – energy – food – ecosystems nexus,
  3. Special Report on environmental change, conflicts, and human migration.

The reports will be published in 2023. In order to progress in their preparation the Coordinating Lead Authors’ meeting  will be held on 9-10 June 2022 in Barcelona. The meeting will be hosted by the University of Barcelona. Around 35 participants will be present: MedECC Coordinators and Secretariat, as well as Coordinators and Coordinating Lead Authors (CLAs) of the MedECC Special Reports. The workshop will be mainly dedicated to the work in groups and plenary sessions in order to make an efficient progress of each report, identify key messages, potential overlaps among the reports, cross-cutting issues among chapters within each report and knowledge gaps. Another important objective of this meeting is to clarify the role of everyone and the technical issues concerning the reports, to clearly identify the next steps and deadlines, as well as to establish the efficient method to progress towards the timely publication of the MedECC Special Reports.

The agenda of the meeting will be available soon.
