Adaptation to Climate change Impacts on the Mediterranean islands' Agriculture (LIFE ADAPT2CLIMA)

Description:

The LIFE ADAPT2CLIMA project aims to facilitate the development of adaptation strategies for agriculture by deploying and demonstrating an innovative decision support tool. The ADAPT2CLIMA Tool will make it possible to simulate the impacts of climate change on crop production and the effectiveness of selected adaptation options in decreasing vulnerability to climate change on three Mediterranean islands, namely Crete (Greece), Sicily (Italy), and Cyprus. The tool will provide: i) climate change projections; ii) hydrological conditions related to agriculture; iii) a vulnerability assessment of selected crops; and iv) an evaluation of the adaptation options identified. The results of the project will support decision making for adaptation planning in the agricultural sector.
