Thematic Pole 5: CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTATION

The SEE Programme approved a number of projects that shared a concrete approach towards climate change adaptation measures, a cross-cutting theme to several projects and Areas of Intervention. Approved projects addressing climate change adaptation had the common aim of creating measures, mechanisms, policies to address the adaptation to climatic events that is or might endanger environment, and forecasting and adapting local and national policies to the effects of climate change. The implementation of adaptation strategies addressed different sectors (forestry and agriculture, drought, water & coasts, urban adaptation and health, floods, disaster management) and has been used as response to climatic events. Projects aiming at streamlining their outcomes towards strategies and policies that address climate change adaptation have the chance to exchange best practices, knowledge and concrete useful outputs, to strengthen the value of their outcomes.

MAIN OUTPUTS TO BE ACHIEVED:

- Development of Risk Maps for future conditions: to be developed using data already produced within the SEE Projects

- New funding opportunities to be identified: possible common Project proposal to be developed

- Scientific Articles on peer reviewed journals; summary of lessons learnt

- Share info on seminars and events: invite each other Pole Members to their relative project's seminars and events; create/share events reports; participation in the INTOURACT Fora on Environment and Tourism

- Include the Pole members in each other project mailing list

- Enhance projects' visibility: newsletter reference to other project achievements; cross reference in each other website

- Share info on similar case studies on climate chanbge, health and heat waves: formulate common policy Guidelines; integrate each other guidelines and policy recommendations

- Share info and studies outcomes on heat waves, wildfires, extremes: create contact between CMCC & NIMH researchers for similar projects (eg. FUME - CMCC FP7 Project)

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         - Share info on the observatory on ICZM (Marenostrum ENPI CBC Med Project): SEERISK & ORIENTGATE to provide inputs on ICZM observatory; share info on ORIENTGATE Pilot Studies 3 & 4; share studies and outcomes of other projects (eg. CMCC Projects such as TESSA Development of technologies for the 'Situational Sea Awareness' and IONIO IONian Integrated marine Observatory Italy/Greece Cooperation program)

- Contribution to climate adapt platform: increase visibility and contribute to the EU strategy discussion and implementation
