Project

MACIS : Minimisation of and Adaptation to Climate change Impacts on BiodiverSity

Description:

MACIS summarises what is already know about the impacts of climate change on biodiversity and develops methods to assess the potential impacts in the future. In joint co- operation with policy makers and stakeholders MACIS shows what can be done to stop biodiversity loss. * Deliverable 1.1: Climate change impacts on European biodiversity – observations and future projections. * Deliverable 2.1: Review paper of the contribution of different models for assessing the impacts of climate change. * Deliverables 2.2 and 2.3: Meta-analysis of adaptation and mitigation measures across the EU25 and their impacts and recommendations how negative impacts can be avoided. * Deliverable 3.4: Report on improved method for reserve selection. * Deliverable 3.5: Report on the results of the run of improved modeling to Europe , * Deliverable 4.1: Policy Analysis for Biodiversity under climate change. * Deliverable 4.2: Policy options to prevent/minimise negative impacts on biodiversity. http://macis-project.net/pub.html
