Project

LIFE CYPADAPT : Development of a national strategy for adaptation to climate change adverse impacts in Cyprus

Description:

 

The aim of CYPADAPT was to strengthen and increase Cyprus adaptive capacity to climate change impacts through the development of a National Adaptation Strategy. The project had the following aims:

- outline knowledge about current climate variations;
- describe future changes projected for the 21st century;
- characterise adaptive capacity to cope with present-day climate;
- provide estimates of potential impacts under future climate change;
- assess the relative vulnerability of different systems, sectors or communities to climate change;
- propose appropriate measures for adapting to climate change.

Both the vulnerability assessment and the adaptation measures refer to all the policy areas of Cyprus that are – or expected to be – affected by climate change. The categorization of the adaptation policy areas was based on the White Paper of the European Commission entitled “Adapting to climate change: towards a European framework for action”.
