EXTRACT : The Mediterranean Sea is an important hotspot of biodiversity and climate change impacts. It is now facing both chronic and acute social, economic and ecological changes and challenges. Many anthropogenic impacts have been identified in marine and coastal zones of the Mediterranean that are amplified by current and emerging climate change effects. The magnitude of impact differs between countries due to differences in geographic and demographic characteristics such as the size of the country or the profile of the coastal population (including population density), and by different levels of economic development, marine and coastal activities, and economic, consumption, production and energy models.
