1 Building the Mediterranean future together Towards climate services in the context of UNEP/MAP H. Ravenel, N. Rousset CLIM RUN Third Governing Board Roma, 8-10 July 2013

2 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

3 UNEP/MAP and the Mediterranean Strategy for Sustainable Development An institutional and legal framework for sustainable development in the Mediterranean : Barcelona Convention, Mediterranean Action Plan (MAP) creation Plan Bleu : 1 the 5 Regional Activity Centre of the MAP : Mediterranean Strategy for Sustainable Development (MSSD) -2015? : Revised MSSD

4 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

5 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

6 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

7 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

8 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
