Abstract

There are several major changes taking place in the Mediterranean that are causing rapid, and possibly irreversible, environmental degradation. There is tourism, and immigration of new permanent residents from Northern Europe; the massive shift in agricultural practices; changes in the management of water; and a rise in domestic and industrial pollution. Environmental problems in this fragile region have existed for centuries, but are now compounded by factors such as global warming, and are the subject of United Nations and European Community attention. The author concludes that finding suitable solutions is as much a political challenge as a technological one, and that the efforts now under way are not before time. -C.Lloyd
