European Research Area for Climate Services

The European Research Area for Climate Services (ERA4CS) consortium aims to boost research for climate adaptation, mitigation and disaster risk management, allowing regions, cities and key economic sectors to develop opportunities and strengthen Europe’s leadership. Climate services provide knowledge to face impacts of climate variability and change, as well as guidance both, to researchers and decision‐makers, in policy and business

Development of a Decision Support System for Improved Resilience & Sustainable Reconstruction of historic areas to cope with Climate Change & Extreme Events based on Novel Sensors and Modelling Tools

Recent studies highlight the potential impact of Climate Change and geo-hazards (such as landslides and earthquakes) on historic areas hosting Cultural Heritage sites and monuments, which in turn yield significant adverse impacts on economies, politics and societies. The deterioration of Cultural Heritage sites is one of the biggest challenges in conservation; aspects such as building technologies/materials, structural responses, preventive measures and restoration strategies, resilience and adaptation methodologies must be considered

Climate Change Scenario Services: Mapping the future

The SENSES project revolved around the use of so-called climate services - easily accessible tools to share scientific information about climate scenarios with other users. Within the project there was a Dutch case study - the river basin of the Overijsselse Vecht

Sustainable freshwater management in coastal zones

Drinking water companies worldwide have freshwater supply problems. In many coastal areas, due to droughts and intrusion of salty water (partly due to rising sea levels), the freshwater provision has become endangered

Supporting long-term local decision-making for Climate-adapted Water Management

The objective of the LIFE Eau&Climat project is to help the actors of water management at the local scale to evaluate the effects of climate change, to take them into account in local management plans, and to implement non-regret adaptation measures despite existing uncertainties. Ten water management structures are involved in the project as associated beneficiaries

LIFE Dunas

The main objective of LIFE DUNAS is to improve the resilience of Porto Santo Islands dune ecosystems to the impacts of climate change. The project aims to achieve this through ecosystem-based approaches, nature-based solutions and long-term sustainable use of pre-dune areas

Assuring water Availability in Agriculture under changing CLIMAte conditions

The main objective of LIFE ACLIMA is to demonstrate technologies and tools for the agricultural and horticultural sector to increase water availability and strengthen the resilience of the water landscape to adapt to the effects of climate change (heat, drought and flooding). The project’s specific objectives are to: Demonstrate innovative technologies, strategies and measures for agricultural and horticultural companies to adapt to declining water availability; Identify, disseminate and transfer best practices at company, cross-company and regional levels, while respecting plant quality, animal welfare and surrounding water systems and ecosystems; Develop evaluation tools and innovative company models that are tailored to fit different branches of agriculture and horticulture and for different climate scenarios; Provide advice and guidance on climate-robust water management for the agricultural and horticultural sector in the Province of Antwerp and beyond; and Prepare an action plan, including a letter to the local and national authorities, to stimulate policies for the Province of Antwerp and Flanders as a whole to support the agricultural and horticultural sector’s adaptation to changing water availability

Impacts of Climate Change on Water Management. Stocktaking, scope for action and strategic fields of action

In December 2020, the German Working Group on Water Issues of the Federal States and the Federal Government (LAWA) prepared a comprehensive report on the concerns, potential responses and strategic fields of action in water resources management, updating the previous work released in 2017. The application-oriented report briefly describes how changes in climate elements (temperature, precipitation, wind, etc

Using Climate-ADAPT: Review process for a submitted item

This video explains how the review process works, thus presenting a clear timeline of actions, as well as the editing and communication efforts that might be needed until the final publication of a new item. This is the 3rd video of a series of 3, including: Account creation and eligibility criteria for new Climate-ADAPT database items How to submit a new item in Climate-ADAPT database

Climate suitability for infectious disease transmission - Dengue

The environmental suitability for the transmission of many infectious diseases, particularly vector-, water- and food-borne diseases, is influenced by shifts in temperature and precipitation. Dengue is a mosquito-borne disease that can cause febrile illnesses and, in severe cases, organ failure and death, with children under five particularly at risk

Vulnerability to extremes of heat in Europe

People over 65 years of age, particularly those with chronic medical conditions (such as diabetes and heart, lung and kidney disease), are among the most vulnerable to the health effects of heatwaves. In a world that is increasingly warming due to climate change, this indicator measures the vulnerability to heat of populations around the world

Managing mosquito borne disease through EYWA: a European tool to support public health authorities in preventing epidemics

(Case study developed for the European Climate and Health Observatory) Climate change, globalisation and other drivers are altering ecological conditions for mosquitoes and some areas are becoming more suitable for new species, including various infectious diseases carried by them. Globally, Mosquito-Borne Diseases (MBDs) infect almost 700 million people every year and are present in over 100 countries, causing millions of deaths annually

LAnd MAnagement for CLImate Mitigation and Adaptation

The project aims to investigate how changes in land cover and land management can help to meet the mitigation and adaptation objectives of the Paris Agreement, as well as the Sustainable Development Goals. The project partners' findings will be disseminated through a number of tools, events and products and by closely involving stakeholders and policy-makers, with the aim to support sustainable land use decision-making

Dynamic information management approach for the implementation of climate resilient adaptation packages in European regions

The IMPETUS project aims at accelerating Europe’s climate change response and turning commitments into concrete action, developing innovative measures to make its regions more resilient. Moreover, the project explores the synergies between climate change mitigation, supporting regional socio-economic growth and stability, and transition of communities to ecological sustainability and resilience

Platform considerations on voluntary information as part of Taxonomy- eligibility reporting

The Taxonomy Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2020/852 of 18 June 2020)   is an essential component of the European Commission’s action plan to reorient capital flows towards a more environmentally sustainable economy and it represents an important step in the EU's objectives to deliver on its 2030 climate goals and achieve climate neutrality by 2050 . The EU Taxonomy is a transparency tool, which  provides a unified classification system of activities that can b e considered “environmentally sustainable”, including climate adaptation

Plan of approach for exceptional low water events in the Meuse basin

The Meuse International River Basin District faced several consecutive years of the summer drought between 2017 and 2020. In order to be able to adapt to these events, which are likely to occur more often because of climate change, the International Meuse Commission has drafted a plan of approach to deal with exceptional low water events, published at the end of 2020
