Direct effects include higher temperatures, increased UV irradiation and localized storms and floods. The Mediterranean region becomes warmer with a significant increase in the frequency, intensity and duration of heat waves Kuglitsch et al. This is amplified in the Mediterranean cities by the urban heat island effect Baccini et al. Heat waves may cause cardiorespiratory deaths McMichael et al. Furthermore, excessive exposure of the skin to the sun ultraviolet radiation causes skin cancer Lucas et al. Climatic trends contribute to the transmission potential of vector-, food- and water-borne diseases in the Mediterranean Basin Negev et al.
Indirect health effects are related to the deterioration of air, soil and water quality Cecchi et al.

Air quality also impacts climate change, because many air pollutants are greenhouse gases Ayres et al. Saltwater intrusion into groundwater caused by sea level rise Leduc et al. In general the elderly people, children, people with pre- existing chronic conditions i. Climate and environmental changes, as well as societal, economic and political issues e. The main hazards in Mediterranean coastal zones are erosion and flooding Satta et al.
Rising sea-level, storm-surge, flooding, and local land subsidence affect harbors, port cities and other coastal infrastructures, as well as wetlands and beaches around the Mediterranean Fig. The infrastructures are often very close to mean sea level, because of limited storm surges and small tidal range Becker et al.
Adaptive capacity of Southern and Eastern regions of Mediterranean is generally smaller than of the one of the Northern regions because of social and economic conditions Satta et al. Risks of floods increase due to climate change, but also due to non-climatic factors such as increasingly sealed surfaces in urban areas and ill-conceived storm water management systems Pistocchi et al.

Adopting a regional perspective is particularly useful to account for the traits of human security, in that it favours the recognition of its interregional dynamics, its environmental, cultural and governance dimensions, and its multifaceted relationship with climate change. Climate change is expected to have, and to some extent already has had, multiple physical and socio- economic impacts on the MR.
In general, physical effects coupled with anthropogenic activities are expected dramatically to increase environmental pressure in the entire Mediterranean area. As far as societal and economic aspects are concerned, it is widely agreed that these outcomes of changing climatic dynamics will severely affect Mediterranean agriculture, fishing, tourism, coastal zones and infrastructure, and that they will ultimately endanger public health.
