Climate change and Mediterranean wetlands

The role of wetlands in climate change adaptation is under appreciated

This technical leaflet was produced by the Specialist Group on climate change (MedWet/STN/Climate-SG). It focuses on the role played by wetlands in fighting climate change, as well as the effects of climate change on these ecosystems.

The Climate Change Specialist Group is one of the five Specialist Groups constituting the MedWet/ STN. It is made up of 9 experts from 7 countries in a wide variety of disciplines, who contribute to different aspects related to climate change.

It analyses the future evolution of climate drivers that will impact on Mediterranean wetlands, assesses their carbon stocks and greenhouse gas emissions, and helps policymakers mitigate the impacts of climate change.
