Building the Mediterranean future together
1. UNEP/MAP AND THE MEDITERRANEAN
STRATEGY FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
2. PROJECT ON CLIMATE VARIABILITY AND
CHANGE AND ICZM (UNEP/MAP)
3. THE PRESANORD/MEDCOF PROCESS IN THE
CONTEXT OF THE GFCS
UNEP/MAP and the Mediterranean Strategy for
Sustainable Development
An institutional and legal framework for
sustainable development in the Mediterranean
-1975 : Barcelona Convention,
Mediterranean Action Plan (MAP) creation
Plan Bleu : 1 the 5 Regional Activity Centre of the MAP
-2005 : Mediterranean Strategy for Sustainable Development
(MSSD)
-2015? : Revised MSSD
UNEP/MAP and the Mediterranean Strategy for
Sustainable Development
The Mediterranean Strategy for Sustainable Development 1.0 : Priority fields of
action
1. Better management of water resources and demand;
2. improved rational use of energy, increased renewable energy use and mitigation of and adaptation to
climate change.
3. Sustainable mobility through appropriate transport management;
4. Sustainable tourism as a leading economic sector;
5. Sustainable agriculture and rural development;
6. Sustainable urban development; and
7. Sustainable management of the sea, coastal areas and marine resources.
Approach mostly sectoral,
Monitoring with indicators of environment degradation or of use of
natural ressources
UNEP/MAP and the Mediterranean Strategy for
Sustainable Development
Directions for MSSD revision (MSSD 2.0)
 4 transversal axes :
- Aïchi objectives, good environmental status (EcAp)
- ICZM
- Green Economy, sustainable consumption and production
- Adaptation
to Climate Change
 More action-oriented than MSSD 1.0 : data, products, tools to support action
 Adaptation to climate change axe would be based on the existing
Regional Adaptation
Framework drafted for the Mediterranean Comission on Sustainable Development (MCSD) of the
UNEP/MAP in 2011
UNEP/MAP and the Mediterranean Strategy for
Sustainable Development
Climate services in the context of the revised MSSD
Adaptation to climate change as one of the transversal axes + action-oriented SMDD
 Climate services might be one major tool to support decision-making and
participate to the implementation of the revised MSSD
 Moreover, climate information systems have also been already identified as a
priority for action by the draft Regional Adaptation Framework of UNEP/MAP
 Initiative that would reinforce progress regarding the GFCS initiated by the WMO in
the Mediterranean region
UNEP/MAP project on climate variability and
change and ICZM
« Integration of climate variability and change into national strategies to
implement ICZM Protocol » (UNEP/MAP project, co-financed by the GEF)
Main objectives :
-Create a platform of climate related information for coastal areas
- identification of existing climate data/products/information in countries, centralizing data
on the Med-CCRISP platform, capacity-building of countries to help them to update data on a
regular basis
-This climate information platform is intended to support the elaboration of ICZM local plan, and
then ICZM national strategies
This project show the strong interest and the active support of the UNEP/MAP in the
development of climate information system to promote adaptation to climate change, here in the
ICZM protocol context, one of the most proeminent area of work of the UNEP/MAP
The PRESANORD/MedCOF process in the context
of the GFCS
PRESANORD/MedCOF : Mediterranean Climate Outlook Forum (WMO)
- Main objective : operational generation of seasonal forecasts for the Mediterranean region to
support adaptation to climate variability and change of socio-economic sectors
-To promote GFCS approach, Plan Bleu has pushed to
involve team of users from socioeconomic sectors in these
forum
- Organization of back to back workshop involving sectoral
stakeholders, meteo/climatic community and insurance
representatives + participation at the Forum
- PRESANORD3/MedCOF2, Tunis 2012 : Tourism
- PRESANORD4/MedCOF3, Cairo 2013 : Coastal cities
