Acequia report: climate change, droughts and water uses

The JRC organised the "Acequia workshop" called "Climate change, droughts and water uses in Gran Canaria" that took place in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria from 18 to 20 June 2018. This report is one of the outcomes of the workshop and has a twofold objective. Firstly, it summarises the main conclusions obtained in the Acequia workshop and, secondly, it also aims to move a step forward in proposing more detailed actions to tackle drought risks in Gran Canaria by means of co-creation practices.

Climate change and the European water dimension – Enhancing resilience

This policy paper is a result of deliberations at the online conference ‘Climate change and the European water dimension – Enhancing resilience’ held on November 4-5, 2020, and provides recommendations for the European Commission and EU Member States on how to increase water-related climate resilience and initiate the transformational change required to ensure resilience in the future. The paper provides input for the current political debate and, in particular, the new EU Adaptation Strategy expected for early 2021. It also aims to influence targeted EU initiatives to enhance adaptation efforts at EU, Member State and transboundary levels.

Networking European Farms to Enhance Cross Fertilisation and Innovation Uptake through Demonstration

The objective of NEFERTITI is to establish an EU-wide highly connected network of demonstration and pilot farms designed to enhance knowledge exchanges, cross fertilization among actors and efficient innovation uptake in the farming sector through peer-to-peer demonstration of techniques on 10 major agricultural challenges in Europe, contributing to a more competitive, sustainable and climate-smart agriculture. 10 interactive thematic networks have been created, bringing together 45 regional clusters (hubs) of demo-farmers and innovations actors: advisors, education, NGOs, researchers, industry and policy makers

Global Biodiversity Outlook 5

The fifth edition of the Global Biodiversity Outlook (GBO-5) is an output of the processes of the Convention on Biological Diversity. This report identifies a number of transitions that will be required to set us on a path to achieve the 2050 Vision for Biodiversity. It is urgent to tackle the twin global challenges of climate change and biodiversity loss in a more coordinated manner, with the understanding that climate change threatens to undermine all efforts to conserve and sustainably manage biodiversity and that nature itself offers some of the most effective solutions to avert the worst impacts of a warming planet. The analysis in this Outlook shows what can and must be done within this decade of action to transform the relationship with nature.

Biodiversity and infrastructure synergies and opportunities for European transport networks

The main objectives of the project are to: Identify future research and innovation needs for a better integration of biodiversity with infrastructure planning, construction, operation and decommissioning by developing a a Strategic Research and Deployment Agenda (SRDA). Make linear infrastructure more high performing and reliable while taking into account the specific needs of Western and Eastern Europe (e

Decision support platforms for climate change adaptation: an overview and introduction

This paper explores the history and characteristics of adaptation platforms. Considering the use of adaptation platforms in practice, as well as the structure and evaluation of adaptation platforms, the paper provides insights on the extent to which they are relevant, usable, and useful,  whether or not these attributes translate into sustained use , barriers to take-up of adaptation platforms , and how these might be overcome
