This book focuses on two basic concepts: security and desertification in the Mediterranean Region and their linkages. It emerged from a single meeting of the "Workshop on Desertification in the Mediterranean Region. A Security Issue" held in Valencia, Spain on 2-5 December 2003, which was sponsored by the NATO Science Committee and NATO Committee on the Challenges of Modern Society. Desertification is recognized as a process of land degradation in arid, semi-arid, and dry sub-humid areas of the world that is the result of natural phenomena (e.g. climate variation) and anthropogenic factors. The outcome of this type of degradation has typically been considered to be either a reduction or a loss of both biological and economic productivity. The scope of the book includes the identification of the physical processes of desertification specific to both the north and south Mediterranean Region. Additionally, it specifically questions how changing environmental conditions may potentially reduce stability and peace in the world and thus affect "environmental security." During the workshop an array of government diplomats, security specialists, and social and physical scientists from the Middle East, North Africa, Europe, and North America reviewed the actions of past and current Mediterranean land use practices, especially in regard to environmental security, environmental consequences, and challenges for the future. The book is divided into six special topical areas dealing with Linking Environmental Condition to Security; Assessing Regional Conditions; Assessing Land Use Change Relative to Human-induced and Natural Cause; Opportunities for Regional Cooperation and Information Sharing; Soil and Vegetation Monitoring; and Development of Regional Desertification Indicators and Forecasting Techniques. This book provides a multi-lateral forum for cooperation, information exchange, and dialogue among the environmental, development, foreign and security policy communities within the Mediterranean Region and thus may provide a precedent for further cooperation and partnership, including other more advanced conferences and publications, on assessing the condition of the entire region and the subsequent impacts and linkages to environmental security.

This meeting was organized as a result of a process, comprising an external evaluation of the Committee on Aquaculture (CAQ) and its Networks, in 2004, and the endorsement by the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean (GFCM) at its thirtieth session (January 2006) of a meeting of experts to identify the needs for a GFCM subsidiary body of CAQ which would deal with the socio-economic and technical aspects of aquaculture in the Mediterranean. The experts defined the terms of reference, priorities and modus operandi of such a subsidiary body.They also requested the fifth session of CAQ: to endorse the establishment of the Coordinating Steering Group on Technical, Economic and Social Aspects of Aquaculture in the Mediterranean (TESAM) and the ad hoc working groups proposed, to present results to the Commission at its forthcoming session, to review and redefine the objectives and terms of reference of the GFCM CAQ in order to reflect more precisely the socio-economic and technical issues that CAQ should handle for the Commission, to explore the possibility of a merger of the Environment and Aquaculture in the Mediterranean Network (EAM) and TESAM, to ensure a lighter cost-effective and efficient structure for CAQ subsidiary bodies, and to instruct the Information System for the Promotion of Aquaculture in the Mediterranean (SIPAM) to start collecting more socloeconomic, technical and research-related data and information to facilitate the work of TESAM. The meeting of experts was informed of the findings and recommendations of the Workshop on European Seabass and Gilthead Seabream Markets, that was held in Rome on 12 May 2006. Many of the recommendations from the workshop were translated into activities to be carried out by the ad hoc Working Group on Marketing as proposed by the Expert Meeting.
