Adaptation strategy for agriculture and vine production in South Moravian region, Czech Republic (2016)
The South Moravian region lies in the southeast of the Czech Republic, on the borders with Austria and Slovakia. The region is home to the Czech Republic’s second largest city Brno. Agricultural land covers 60% of the area of the region, of which 83% is arable land. A specialty of South Moravia is vine growing, with more than 90 % of the total area of vineyards in the Czech Republic. Moreover, water management also plays an important role in this region. This report presents a study of suitable and sustainable adaptation measures and strategies for the agricultural (particularly vine growing) and water management sectors to deal with changing climate (mainly water availability), while incorporating perceptions of local stakeholders. Further, this study also investigated perceptions of local stakeholders towards climate change as well as preferences towards suitable adaptation measures and strategies in the agricultural sector.
