    The Mediterranean Basin is experiencing major changes in environmental conditions, which can introduce new challenges to the resilience of its natural and human systems. This situation is combined with rapid and spatially diverse socio-economic development in the region, mainly in terms of demographic trends and settlement patterns, thus leading to higher exposure to environmental hazards. Furthermore, new risks are expected to emerge from interactions between drivers and impacts across sectors, thus increasing the vulnerability of natural systems and human populations.
