Summary and Major Findings
People is the common theme in this part of the RACCM. The part gathers results from the CIRCE project that concern socio-ecological systems all around the Mediterranean. Due to the interdisciplinarity of the project, chapters in this part discuss climate change and societies from different perspectives, such as an economic, social science, or the health sector’s point of view. The chapters treat such diverse topics as socio-economic assessment, adaptive capacity and adaptation strategies, health, energy demand and mitigation options, water, tourism, retirement migration, and future options for the Mediterranean. Thus, this part offers a broad overview over aspects of human life in the Mediterranean region influenced by, and influencing, climate change. In the present section we first give a brief outline of the different chapters dealing with People, then indicate main findings about specific topics, and finally highlight some themes recurring through the different chapters.
