The Integration of climatic variability and change into national strategies to implement the ICZM Protocol in the Mediterranean project (ClimVar & ICZM) is a collective effort to promote the use of Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) in countries sharing the Mediterranean as an effective tool to deal with the impacts of climate variability and change in coastal zones, by mainstreaming them into the ICZM process.

It was adopted in January 2012 and will be completed late in 2015.

The project is led by UNEP/MAP (www.unepmap.org) and its executing partners are PAP/RAC (http://www.pap-thecoastcentre.org), Plan Bleu/RAC (www.planbleu.org) and GWP-Med (http://www.gwpmed.org).

The countries participating in the project are Albania, Algeria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Montenegro, Palestine, Syria and Tunisia.
The total budget of the Project is 9.2 million USD. Out of it the Global Environment Facility (GEF) contributes 2.2 million, while the remaining amount of 7 million USD is from the participating countries, executing agencies, and donors.
