Project

ADAPT2CLIMA : Adaptation to Climate change Impacts on the Mediterranean islands' Agriculture

Description:

The overall aim of the LIFE ADAPT2CLIMA project is to increase knowledge on the vulnerability of EU Mediterranean agriculture to climate change and to support decision making for adaptation planning. A set of climate, hydrological and crop simulation models for the assessment of climate change impacts on agriculture will be developed, as well as a decision support tool for the elaboration of adaptation strategies for the agricultural sector. Three among the largest islands of the Mediterranean Europe are selected as implementation areas: the islands of Crete (Greece), Sicily (Italy) and Cyprus.
