Project

CCECON : Assessment of economic impacts of climate change in Cyprus

Description:

In the framework of a wider study, co-funded by other sources, which will initially examine physical and biological impacts of climate change in Cyprus, the proposed project will quantify the expected economic effect of climate change in three important sectors:

  1. impact on agriculture
  2. impact on the energy system
  3. impact on human health due to changes in air quality throughout the country

The project will exploit assessments of physical, chemical and biological effects to be provided by experts in these fields (i.e. effect on agricultural production, atmospheric concentrations of air pollutants and air pollution-induced mortality and morbidity), and will then assess the economic implications (in monetary terms) associated with these effects. To achieve these objectives, there will be collaboration with major national authorities and researchers that deal with agriculture, air quality and energy issues in Cyprus. As these topics have not been adequately addressed for any Mediterranean country up to now, the project's multidisciplinary approach will improve knowledge for this region in general and can contribute to the advance of similar analyses in other South European countries.
