According to a new study published by the journal “Nature Communications”, 42 Mediterranean @UNESCO World Heritage Sites (WHS) are at risk due to climate change. It is estimated that by 2100, flood risk may increase by 50%, and erosion by 13%. Though UNESCO oversees the well-being of its sites, it is up to each site’s home country to take action to protect its structural and aesthetic integrity. However, this proves to be more challenging in countries that may not be able to prioritize mitigating the negative impacts of climate change due to economic difficulties, refugee issues, or social conflict. Nonetheless, UNESCO WHS are the most valuable symbols of global culture and world history, and they are on the path of becoming a climate change casualty. Have you been to a World Heritage Site?
