Annotation:

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.

Timetable:

2016

The economic context of climate change impacts is one of the six stages in the project, which contributes to evaluate the impacts of the proposed adaptation measures in the South Moravian region. Cost-benefit analysis is tested for 35 cadastral units where co-investigators suggested adaptation measures on the impacts of drought, erosion, retention and torrential rains. Finally, the project develops a comprehensive strategy to harmonize and link the partial conclusions into the linkages and ensuring the synergy effect of different types of instruments (eg. economic, legislative, planning approach).
