Jul 29 2021


ADEME and its partners, Union for the Mediterranean and Plan Bleu, awarded the Mediterranean Climate Change Adaptation Awards at the “Mediterranean Climate Change Adaptation: experience and good practices” conference today, July 27th 2021. The event’s Big Winner was Algeria’s National Sanitation Office for its innovative water treatment plant with filters in the Tamacine area.

27 July 2021. The Mediterranean region is at high risk from climate change, according to the First Mediterranean Assessment Report prepared by the independent network of Mediterranean Experts on Climate and environmental Change (MedECC) By the end of the century, the average temperature in the Mediterranean should rise by up to 5.6°C, rainfall should drop by 20% and sea levels should rise by an average of up to 90 cm. The Mediterranean, the climate change hotspot, will therefore be exposed to new stress in terms of accessing resources, which causes a great deal of unrest.

Yet, the Mediterranean regions are launching projects to manage disaster risks, adapt infrastructures, protect ecosystems and design public policies to make them more resilient.

The ADEME 3 Mediterranean Climate Change Adaptation Awards, supported by the Union for the Mediterranean and Plan Bleu, aimed to put the spotlight on these committed regions and, most importantly, showcase concrete mitigation projects by public and private figures (councils, charities, universities, businesses etc.) in urban, rural or coastal areas surrounding the Mediterranean.
