CarpathCC project is completed, CEEweb took substantial role

The CarpathCC (Carpath Climate Change) project aimed at the In-depth assessments of vulnerability of environmental resources and ecosystem-based adaptation measures in the Carpathian Region. The Carpathian region was, until recently, one of the less investigated areas of Europe, especially of the European Union. Therefore, the European Commission allocated funds for the better and coordinated investigation of the region. Focus was put on the analysis of the vulnerability of water and ecosystems of the Carpathian region to climate change impacts and other man-made pressures and on identifying potential adaptation measures, focusing on adaptive water management and ecosystem-based approaches in the 2010 plan. This would provide strong benefits to national and regional authorities of the Carpathian Region, and contribute to concrete policy proposals in line with the Commission’s Adaptation Strategy, such as National or Regional adaptation strategies, or a Danube Climate Adaptation Strategy. The results of this analysis is strongly interrelated with the work already underway and also provides a contribution to the EU Clearinghouse on adaptation (renamed as European Climate Adaptation Platform or Climate-ADAPT).

Work was structured along the following modules:

  1. IN – DEPTH STUDY ON THE KEY CLIMATE CHANGE THREATS AND IMPACTS ON WATER RESOURCES
  2. IN-DEPTH STUDY ON THE IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE THREATS ON ECOSYSTEMS
  3. IN- DEPTH STUDY ON THE IMPACT OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON ECOSYSTEM-BASED PRODUCTION
  4. IN – DEPTH STUDY ON ADAPTATION MEASURES
  5. SUPPORTING STAKEHOLDER INTERACTIONS
  6. INTEGRAL VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENTS IN FOCAL AREAS

CEEweb participated substantially in Modules 3 and 4.

The work was supported by the EU DG ENV Contract no ENV.D.1/FRA/2011/0006. In order to have a more detailed overview about our project and the latest results, please, see the project website.
