Tree range evolution under climate change

This project has evaluated how changing climatic conditions will modify the distributional range of tree species, taking adaptation into account. More specifically, the following questions were addressed: (1) under which conditions will distribution ranges move, and at what speed? (2) will populations at the low-latitude edge of the distribution survive, adapt or go extinct? These questions were addressed by the combined use of two existing approaches: theoretical and process-based modelling

Transboundary Water Basin Management

In many parts of the world water resources traverse political boundaries. The sustainable management of these trans-boundary water resources by necessity requires regional cooperation among riparian states

Biological diversity in an inconstant world: temporal turnover in modified ecosystems

The BioTIME project addresses the temporal dynamics of species abundance distributions and the capacity of these distributions to cope with the impacts that result from human pressure on our planet. BioTIME has addressed this questions in three complementary ways: (i) by using theoretical models to understand species abundance distributions and predict responses to a range of events including climate change and the arrival of invasive species;  (ii) by testing predictions concerning the resistance and resilience of communities  by a comparative analysis of existing data sets (that encompass communities in terrestrial, freshwater and marine environments for ecosystems extending from the poles to the tropics) and through a new field experiment that quantifies temporal turnover across a community (unicellular organisms to vertebrates) in relation to factors both natural (dispersal limitation) and anthropogenic (human disturbance) thought to shape species abundance distribution; (iii) by applying these new insights to two important conservation challenges

European Lakes Under Environmental Stressors (Supporting lake governance to mitigate the impact of climate change)

The project aims to support the sustainable management of Central European lakes by fostering a combination of vulnerability and risk assessment, monitoring and participative planning.

Influences of EU Forests on Weather Patterns

This project aims to provide an assessment of the influences of EU forests on weather/climate patterns, in particular atmospheric precipitation across the continent of Europe. To provide context, the project will summarise relevant literature and this will be synthesised with information from observation records and novel modelling experiments to provide a thorough up-to-date assessment

Regional adaptation strategies for the German Baltic Sea coast

The objective of RADOST (Regional Adaptation Strategies for the German Baltic Sea Coast) is the development of adaptation strategies for the Baltic coastline of Germany through a dialogue between academics, economists, policy-makers and the public. Other important goals are to minimize the economic, social and environmental harm and to capitalize on development opportunities brought about by climate change

Urban Transition Öresund Project

The Öresund Region, which encompasses a population of 3.8 million across Southern Sweden and Eastern Denmark, aims to be a regional ”powerhouse” in Europe for sustainability, innovation and clean-tech

Sustainable Uses of Baltic Marine Resources

The Baltic Sea Region faces enormous challenges including growing transport, new installations, fishery declines, severe marine pollution with excessive nutrient input and the effects of climate change. But the future is not all bleak: novel technologies and growing knowledge provide opportunities for new uses of marine ecosystems, which may not only have commercial appeal, but also contribute to solve environmental problems

Suburban neighbourhood adaptation for a changing climate

How can existing suburban neighbourhoods be best adapted to reduce further impacts of climate change and withstand ongoing changes? The SNACC project focuses on adaptations to the built environment, through changes to individual homes and larger neighbourhood scale adaptations (urban re-design). SNACC focuses on suburbs because they are the most common type of urban area in the UK, housing 84% of the population

Sustainable farm Management Aimed at reducing Threats to Soils under climate change

SmartSOIL focuses on arable and mixed farming systems in Europe and will develop an innovative approach using the soil Carbon (C) flow and stocks concept to assess the impact of C management on crop productivity, soil organic C (SOC) stocks and other ecosystem services. SmartSOIL will develop a decision support tool (DST) to enable farmers, advisors and policy makers to discuss and select the most appropriate and cost-effective practices for particular farming systems, soils and climates - in a smart way (SmartSOIL)

Assessment of climatic change and impacts on the quantity and quality of water

It is now widely accepted that human activities are capable of triggering climate change, with potentially significant environmental and socioeconomic impacts. Although the effects of the changing climate will be largely dependent on the region, it is of vital importance to devise tools for monitoring and predicting these effects

Strategic Alliance for integrated Water Management Actions

The project aims to adapt existing water management systems to the effects of extreme flood events due to climate change, focusing on sustainable development of society and regional economies. Objectives: * Improve, facilitate and accelerate the implementation of the new Flood Directive (FD) by developing a common planning and implementation strategy based on experience from a number of cases in the NSR, * Work out a decision strategy on how to use and prioritise new adaptive measures in Flood Risk Management Plans (FRMPs) closely coordinated with the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD) implementation process to show synergetic potentials, * Develop and compile new adaptive structural and non-structural flood mitigation measures and schemes to improve water management systems in the NSR, * Prepare institutional, expert and public structures for an optimal implementation and operational capability of the FD in coordination with WFD, focusing on education, communication, capacity building and adaptive measures
