Adaptive Land use for Flood Alleviation

ALFA stands for ‘Adaptive Land use for Flood Alleviation’. It is an EU-funded project (INTERREG IVB NWE) which aims to protect citizens in the North West Europe region against the effects of the risk of flooding due to climate change

Forest Management Adaptation

To ensure that forests are sustainable into the future woodland managers need to consider tree species selection, adapting planting regimes and technical innovations. The project aims to stimulate a cross-border strategy for understanding the climate change responses and adaptation capacity of forest ecosystems commonly found in the south of England and north of France

EURopean research on OCean Ecosystems under Anthropogenic and Natural forcingS

The EUR-OCEANS Consortium (EOC) builds on the legacy of the EC-funded, FP6 EUR-OCEANS European Network of Excellence (EO NoE), which contributed to the scientific expertise and dissemination of knowledge on marine ecosystems in the context of climate/global change from 2005 to 2008. The EUR-OCEANS acronym stands for EURopean research on OCean Ecosystems under Anthropogenic and Natural forcingS

Restoration of beech and silver fir forests in the Toscan Marches Appennines

In the Italian Apennines (Mediterranean area), climate change is causing particularly extreme, sudden and intense phenomena, suggesting a likely alteration in precipitation rates in the future, with atmospheric humidity reductions and a decrease in annual and summer rainfall. This could cause selective pressure – leading to genetic erosion in a very short timeframe - on the most sensitive ecosystems and species located at high altitudes, such as beech and silver fir forests, which are often isolated and have limited critical mass

REstoring rivers FOR effective catchment Management

The REFORM project was targeted towards the development of guidance and tools to make river restoration and mitigation measures more cost-effective and to support the 2nd and future River Basin Management Plans (RMBPs) for the WFD. Aims of REFORM were (1) to provide a framework for improving the success of hydromorphological restoration measures and (2) to assess more effectively the state of rivers, floodplains, and connected groundwater systems

Sustainable and integrated urban water system management

SANITAS was created to meet the deficiencies in human resources in European Urban Water System (UWS) management, the need for applications of technology and sustainability through the development of an integrated technology, knowledge and action base. SANITAS aimed at addressing the critical lack of trained professionals at a time when they are most needed, and when multidisciplinary skills are emerging as a key training requirement

Policy-relevant assessment of socio-economic effects of droughts and floods

PREEMPT (Policy-relevant assessment of economic and social effects of hydro-meteorological disasters) is a policy-directed assessment exercise, setting to assist the relevant authorities to better appreciate the risks posed by droughts and floods. It does so by collecting the data about past disasters, filling-up the knowledge gaps - in particular about indirect and intangible losses, both economic and social ones, and by improving risk assessment methods and approaches in place in four participating countries: Italy , Spain , Belgium and Germany

Climate change: challenge for training applied plant scientists

One of the fundamental aims of the project is to make specialists and future specialists in agriculture and crop production aware of the possible effects of climate change on farming, after which they must be taught how to reduce or eliminate the unfavourable effects of these changes. The demonstration of the cause and effect relationships involved in climate change will help to change attitudes to environment protection

Permafrost Long-Term Monitoring Network

The overall objective of the PermaNET project is to make a contribution to the mitigation of natural hazards that result from climate change impacts on alpine permafrost. Through the creation of an alpine-wide monitoring network and by developing a common strategy for dealing with permafrost related hazards PermaNET contributes to sustainable development and the implementation of good governance practices
