LIFE Clinomics Project

Adaptation to Climate Change in the Mediterranean

Adaptation to Climate Change in the Mediterranean

Wednesday, 21st November

Ple Room, Casa Llotja de Mar | Barcelona

This event takes place under the framework of LIFE Clinomics, a European Union-funded project with the objective to increase the resilience to climate change in Mediterranean companies and local entities of the agricultural, forest, fishing and tourism sectors.

Climate change affects our natural system, the environment and people’s health, but also economic activities. Its effects furthermore do not stop at borders, wherefore the transfer of knowledge becomes vital to increase adaptation capacities of economic activities throughout Mediterranean countries, which share similar climate characteristics.

During this event, we share the vision and approach of LIFE Clinomics project on how to adapt the Mediterranean agricultural, forest, fishing and tourism sectors to the challenges of climate change. We moreover enrich project results by exchanging and debating ideas with the aim to enhance sensitivity and knowledge about climate change impacts within these economic sectors.
