Europe & Central Asia
Montenegro is exposed to seismic hazards, especially along the coast, the Zeta-Skadar depression and the Berane basin. Around 40 percent of the country's territory is within a zone of anticipated seismic intensity, greater or equal to magnitude 8 on the Richter scale. This affects around 60 percent of the country’s population. Meteorological hazards in Montenegro include floods and drought. According to available projections, temperatures will rise 0.60 degrees to 1.3°C by 2030, depending on the season and the area. Owing to changes in precipitation, there will be a sharp increase in variability of river flow, characterized by flooding and hydrological drought.
