Résumé
This dissertation reviews and evaluates the degree to which the European Union is addressing water shortage in Libya and Tunisia through funds allocated for climate adaptation and development, in the context of two particular policy frameworks. Adaptation to climate change is crucial for the reduction of risks and damages caused by current and future impacts of climate, particularly in the southern regions of the Mediterranean. The European Union aims at addressing consequences occurring within this region, such as water shortage, through funds allocated towards various projects. Content analysis and descriptive statistics will be utilised as research methods for the purpose of finding to what extent, the two chosen policy frameworks are dealing with water shortage in Libya and Tunisia within the projects that they are funding. The main characteristics of content analysis will help so as to construct tables through keywords, which will therefore determine the main focus of these projects. So as to solidify the results obtained, a descriptive analysis will be used, portraying results in both graphs and charts, enabling the comparison and determining the purpose of the projects under the two frameworks. The conclusion deriving from this analysis and data collection is that the frameworks do not always and directly address water shortage in Libya and Tunisia. The process of determining this conclusion will be shown and dealt with in detail throughout the last chapter. The research of this thesis is based around the important research question : To what degree is the EU addressing water shortage in Libya and Tunisia in the context of the ENP and the Euro-MED policy frameworks ?
