Impact of Climate Change on the quality of urban and coastal waters

DiPol aims to collect knowledge on the impact of climate change (CC) on water quality, to communicate and raise awareness towards this knowledge, to improve the ability of decision makers to counteract these impacts on local and international level, and to facilitate public participation herein. SIMACLIM, as a tool developed within the DiPol project, will illustrate these complex environmental processes and simulate different scenarios, which can aim at certain societal goals

Resilience to Climate change in Mediterranean forests

The project aim was to preserve forest ecosystems in the face of the risks related to climate changes, by promoting naturalisation processes and biodiversity increase, and by improving the resilience of ecosystems to environmental stress. The specific objective of the project was to implement a regional forest policy to increase the resilience of Sicilian forests and favour biodiversity conservation

European Solutions by Co-operation and Planning in Emergencies (for coastal flooding)

Escape aimed to minimise the effects of flooding situations in coastal areas, through improving contingency plans, increasing public awareness and developing systems for monitoring high water and evacuation possibilities. The principle outcome was increased public awareness and knowledge about the risk of flooding, and greater understanding of the actions that need to be taken by the general public, scientists, and politicians during a flood event

The Bruntwood Initiative for Sustainable Cities

EcoCities is a joint initiative between the University of Manchester and property company Bruntwood. The project looks at the impacts of climate change and at how we can adapt our cities to the challenges and opportunities that a changing climate presents

Building a structured, indicator based knowledge system for sustainable forest policy and management

The general objective of the project is to establish a knowledge base for national forest policy development and implementation, based on the Ministerial Conference on the Protection of Forests in Europe (MCPFE) criteria and indicator estimates, including impact assessments on forests related to climate change. The knowledge base will be compatible with EU initiatives and legislation on Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) assessment and implementation monitoring

ENvironmental Optimization of IRrigAtion Management with the Combined uSe and Integration of High PrecisIon Satellite Data, Advanced Modeling, Process Control and Business Innovation

The overall aim of ENORASIS is to develop an intelligent, integrated Decision Support System (ENORASIS Service Platform and Components) for environmentally optimised and, thus, sustainable irrigation management by farmers and water management organisations. ENORASIS system will actually target to motivate irrigation farmers to optimize the use of water, whereas it will also provide to (irrigation) water management organizations intelligent tools and services to effectively forecast and manage irrigation water resources, cover irrigation demand and charge customers (farmers) on the basis of an intelligent system of motives and incentives that exploits irrigation demand side fluctuations

Integrated Approach to Flood Risk Management

The management of water resources is becoming, at a time of scarcity and climatic change, more and more complex and is often subject to social tension among the various inhabitants of the same geographical area. When, on top of this, a terrain is affected by calamitous events (landslides, inundations, river outpourings, floods, debris flows, slope failures, etc

Enhancement of Soil Aquifer Treatment to Improve the Quality of Recharge Water in the Llobregat River Delta Aquifer

According to climate change predictions, Spain, as most other Mediterranean countries, faces increased water shortages, pollution and loss of water-dependent ecosystems in the near future. The Llobregat river delta aquifers - at the south-western corner of the Barcelona metropolitan area - are an important component of the system of local water resources, supplying water to the city

Local endogenous develoment and urban development of small alpine towns

AlpCity focuses on local development and urban regeneration of small alpine towns. AlpCity aims at promoting common understanding, cultural/political change, through a large trans-national partnership and different groups of activities, namely: networking and exchange to create common knowledge and strategies, collection of local best practices, innovative project-cases by single local authorities, dissemination and communication, guidelines/future scenarios

European Project on Ocean Acidification

The European Project on Ocean Acidification (EPOCA) was the first international research effort on ocean acidification. The overall goal of this project was to fill the numerous gaps in our understanding of the effects and implications of ocean acidification

Full costs of climate change

The objectives of ClimateCost are to advance knowledge of the full economic costs of climate change (costs of inaction and adaptation), through the following tasks: To identify and develop consistent scenarios for climate change and socio-economic development, including mitigation To quantify in physical terms, and economic costs, the costs of inaction for these scenarios To extend analysis to quantify and value the costs and benefits of adaptation, and the residual costs of climate change after adaptation To asses the physical effects and economic damages of a number of the most important major catastrophic events and major socially contingent effects To bring all the information above together to provide policy relevant output, including information on physical effects and economic values, and undertake analysis of policy scenarios. Policy relevant output includes a series of policy briefs on adapation costs for European and Global Climate Change Projections, Sea Level Rise, River Floods, Energy, Health, Europe co-benefits

Knowledge-based Sustainable Management for Europe's Seas

Europe’s four regional seas (Baltic, Black, Mediterranean and North Sea - North-East Atlantic) have suffered severe environmental degradation due to human pressure. Existing measures to manage pressures have proven inadequate and the EU Member States have recently responded by adopting a new policy (Blue Book for Maritime Policy) and environmental legislation (Marine Strategy Framework Directive)

ROADEX Network. For better rural roads

The ROADEX Network is the fifth collaborative venture by the ROADEX Partners. It aims to continue close working between the Partners on all matters concerning the management of low volume rural roads including the ROADEX Knowledge Centre, website and e-learning system, results, reports etc

Levant rocky-shore biodiversity: Testing ecological impacts of climate change and bioinvasions on a unique ecosystem

This project studied several ecological aspects of the rocky intertidal along one of the most unique and ecologically-dynamic coasts, and investigate the effects of climate change and bioinvasions in the context of community ecology. The objectives of the project were: to launch a long-term monitoring program of community biodiversity along the Israeli coast to enable the detection of long-term changes related to global warming, bioinvasions and other potential influences, to use natural heat-stress events as proxies for the potential effects of extreme climate change events, to test the response of important species to elevated temperatures and CO2, to study recruitment patterns of influential invasive species and experimentally test their biological interactions with indigenous species and other invaders and their general impacts on biodiversity

Climate Change and its Impact on Tourism in the Alpine Space

The project aims at dealing with the internationally recognised issue of the effects of climate change on Alpine tourism, with reference both to winter tourism and sports and to Alpine all-seasons tourism. The issue of providing appropriate strategies to ensure a balanced development of Alpine tourism, the preparation of appropriate adaptation policies at the national, regional and local level and the assessment of the economic and social effects of climate change on tourism was a central issue in several studies

From theory and plans to eco-efficient and sustainable practices to improve the status of the Baltic Sea

The project's overall objective is to improve the status of the Baltic Sea by contributing to the practical implementation of measures chosen in RBMPs in the region. Detailed objectives are to: * identify and suggest improvements to present water management practices by analysing the contents and planning processes of RBMPs; * establish action plans based on RBMPs for pilot areas representing best practices and measures for water protection and public participation; * prepare investment plans (incl
