Adaptation to Climate change Impacts on the Mediterranean islands' Agriculture

LIFE Ref. No: LIFE14 CCA/GR/000928
Area of implementation: Cyprus,
Crete (Greece), Sicily (Italy)
Duration: 53 months
(1 October 2015 - 29 February 2020)
Project Budget: 1,497,060 €
(60% EC funding)

The overall aim of the LIFE ADAPT2CLIMA project is to increase knowledge on the vulnerability of EU Mediterranean agriculture to climate change and to support decision making for adaptation planning. The methodology is based on the deployment of a set of climate, hydrological and crop simulation models for the assessment of climate change impacts on agriculture, as well as, on the development of a decision support tool for the elaboration of adaptation strategies for the agricultural sector.Read more
