Environmental And Human Security In The Mediterranean
The terms environmental and human security and vulnerability are defined in this paper in a broad sense. Human security is directly related to environmental preservation (water, air, soil, ecosystems, and biodiversity). Environmental and human security have been recognized as key factors for socioeconomic growth and prosperity and sustainable development. Regulation and policy to sustain environmental and human security in European Union (EU) countries, and more specifically in the Mediterranean region, are briefly reviewed in this presentation. Examples from environmental sectors like water resources may include the EU Water Framework Directive (EU-WFD) and institutional issues for facing water quality degradation and hydrological extremes, such as floods.
