It is a multidisciplinary project focused on mitigation of negative climate change impacts, particularly the extreme phenomena of climate change impacts, i.e. drought and rainstorms in the South Moravian Region (hereinafter referred to as SMR). On the basis of the current climatic data and expected scenarios, this region can be considered the most affected region (particularly by drought) in the Czech Republic. Project outputs will create a system of tools of various types of adaptation measures reduce negative climate change effects.
The main focus of the project is aimed at the agriculture and forestry sector, which utilizes 90% of SMR’s area and in which, due to the climatic change, a reduction in the natural land capability and subsequently in farm crop revenues or forest tree species increases can be expected. Conversely, if the adaptation implementation is successful, the agriculture and forestry sector can show the most significant effects.
From the view of its territorial scope, the project solution is distributed to the following operations in 2015
- Monitoring, evaluations, analyses, calculations and strategies carried out generally for the territory of the entire region.
- Proposals of measures in the area of selected river basins and demonstration projects to provide a practical solution to mitigate the undesirable impacts in the agricultural and forestry managements.
This project has been funded with support from EEA and Norwegian Funds 2009-2014.
