The MedCLIVAR conferences offer to researchers from all relevant fields the opportunity to address open questions on the climate of the Mediterranean region and to present results, tools and methods for better understanding its complexity. Each MedCLIVAR conference is a forum where to contribute towards strategies to respond to climate change pressures on ecosystems and human societies, with discussion on impacts, adaptation, mitigation and policy solutions and options in the Mediterranean region.
