The Eastern Mediterranean, Southeastern Europe, and Middle East regions have experienced tremendous political, social, and economic changes in the last 3 decades. This period has seen population movement through internal displacement, border-crossing refugees, and general migration and immigration; in some cases, even borders have shifted. Armed conflicts and difficult sociopolitical post-conflict conditions on the one hand and serious economic crises on the other have affected many aspects of life and development. In addition to the number of migrants, the number of international tourists has increased steeply-all of them equally at risk of becoming wildfire causers and victims.
