    The first is better, but neither is really correct.

    They're both fragments. Each is a dependent clause and needs to be attached to an independent clause. Either before or after the first sentence, you need a group of words with a subject and a verb that describes what happens because of the problems ("Because famine, flood and drought will be more important problems for Mediterranean countries to take care of, these countries will need more money." OR "Leaders in the region are concerned because famine, flood and drought will be more important problems for Mediterranean countries to take care of.")

    Neither, but the second is way off. These are fragments, not complete sentences.
