Increase in health problems in Mediterranean cities expected due to climate change
For Mediterranean cities, major problems detected by the system analysis carried out as part of RAMSES are an expected increase in health problems and decrease of human comfort (due to the expected increase of thermal impact and air pollution), the decrease of security due to expected increase of sea level rise, and problems with access to services due to the expected increase of droughts.
More details can be found in the report "Factors of transition and their dynamics".
The 1st RAMSES Policy brief summarises the most relevant findings of the project so far drawing high-level policy recommendations from them
