A coastal risk atlas
To ensure consistency and comparability between coastal regions’ risk assessments on the effects of climate change.

Monitoring of extreme climate events in coastal areas
MAREMED will help set up an observatory or network of observatories at Mediterranean level, to monitor coastline changes and extreme climate events, to be shared by the different levels of governance.
