Observations show that the climate is getting warm. The warming of the climate cause melting in glaciers, shrinking in snow cover, rise in sea level and change in precipitation patterns. Assessment reports (eg, IPCC, 2007, 2013) of The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) indicate that the Mediterranean basin is one of the most vulnerable regions against climate change. Its main reason is that the water resources of this region will reduce in the future. All model-based climate change projections predict a decrease in precipitation for the Mediterranean basin in the future. It is estimated that Turkey, a Mediterranean country, will inevitably be affected by this change.
Meteo Enerji aims to investigate Turkey and its hot spots in terms of climate change, to analyze effects of climate change in terms of national and regional resources and sectors, and offer the recommendations for adaptation to the fight against climate change. The climate change and its effects on Turkey and hot spots will be clearly, accurately and consistently exhibited through comprehensive and detailed analysis by taking advantage of the studies conducted and the existing data sets at the maximum level.
