Water management for road authorities in the face of Climate Change

The WATCH project is one of the two projects on climate change adaptation in the road sector financed by CEDR through its 2015 call for research proposals. It focuses on water management, and will produce a number of results of immediate benefit to National Road Administrators (NRA): A comprehensive manual on how to determine the resilience of drainage systems and the consequences for inspection and maintenance as well as for the design and assessment of alternatives

Integrated Sea Storm Management Strategies

Extreme sea storms events are recognized, by the scientific community, as one of the major factors, together with the anthropic pressures, affecting the coastal changes. Coastal flooding and erosion, impacts on ecosystems, and damages to infrastructures and productive activities can be worsened if combined with the absence of adequate early warning systems, coordinated strategies, or coastal management and planning, with significant related economic costs

Deep-sea Sponge Grounds Ecosystems of the North Atlantic: an integrated approach towards their preservation and sustainable exploitation

SponGES overarching goal is to develop an integrated ecosystem-based approach to preserve and sustainably use deep-sea sponge ecosystems of the North Atlantic. Sponge grounds constitute one of the most diverse, ecologically and biologically important and vulnerable marine ecosystems of the deep-sea that have received very little research and conservation attention to date

Development of a Decision Support System for increasing the Resilience of Transportation Infrastructure based on combined use of terrestrial and airborne sensors and advanced modelling tools

The PANOPTIS project aims at increasing the resilience (ability to adapt) of road infrastructure under unfavourable conditions, such as extreme weather, landslides, and earthquakes. Its main goal is to combine downscaled climate change scenarios (applied to road infrastructure) with structural and geotechnical simulation tools, and with actual data from sensors (terrestrial and airborne) so as to provide the operators with an integrated tool able to support more effective management of infrastructure at planning, maintenance and operational level

New Strategy for Re-Naturing Cities through Nature-Based Solutions

The URBAN GreenUP project aims at the development, application and replication of Renaturing Urban Plans in a number of European and non-European partner cities with the aim to mitigate the effects of climate change, improve air quality and water management, as well as to increase the sustainability of our cities through innovative nature-based solutions. Cities involved are three runner cities -Valladolid (Spain), Liverpool (UK) and Izmir (Turkey) - where the URBAN GreenUP methodology will be validated and five follower cities - Mantova (Italy), Ludwigsburg (Germany), Medellin (Colombia), Chengdu (China) and Binh Dinh-Quy Nhon (Vietnam), which will set up their own Renaturing Urban Plans to replicate the URBAN GreenUP strategy and its green economy approach

Climate suitability for infectious disease transmission - Vibrio

Vibrio bacteria are found in brackish marine waters and cause a range of human infections, including gastroenteritis, wound infections, septicaemia and cholera. This indicator assesses the influence of a changing climate on the environmental suitability for the transmission of these infectious diseases

Vector-borne diseases (no further updates)

The transmission cycles of vector-borne diseases are sensitive to climatic factors, but disease risks are also affected by factors such as land use, vector control, human behaviour, population movements and public health capacities. Climate change is regarded as the principal factor behind the observed move of the tick species Ixodes ricinus — the vector of Lyme borreliosis and tick-borne encephalitis in Europe — to higher latitudes and altitudes
