The Mediterranean basin is one of the most prominent hot spots of climate and environmental change, according to a report by the Union for the Mediterranean. It is the second most impacted area by warming after the Arctic. It accumulates most of the climatic risks and countries bordering the Mediterranean are highly populated. Several major (regional) organizations have set priorities to counteract the effect of climate change within the Mediterranean.
