ADRIACLIM

Climate change information, monitoring and management tools for adaptation strategies in Adriatic coastal areas

Adriaclim project is dedicated to supporting the development of science-based regional and local climate change adaptation plans. The project will address climate change threats by developing regional and local adaptation plans based on up-to-date meteorological and oceanographical information acquired through newly implemented observing and modelling systems for the Adriatic Sea.

The Mediterranean Sea and specifically the Adriatic coastal and marine areas are particularly vulnerable to climate-related risks. The sea surface temperature of the Adriatic Sea will increase of about +1.5/1.6°C in 2050 and sea level will increase of +7

cm with consequent negative impacts on coastal areas and marine ecosystem services. In Italy and Croatia climate monitoring, modelling and adaptation are necessary to face this crucial climate challenge and to turn potential threats into economic opportunities. AdriaClim will develop accurate information able to support the development of regional and local climate change adaptation plans. In particular coastal adaptation planning, for a sustainable blue economy, will be developed based on reliable and accurate information on local sea level rise, sea temperature and salinity, coastal erosion, etc. AdriaClim will contribute to fill the gaps (lack of geographical coverage) in existing observing systems and will enhance and complement the existing modelling capacity (e.g. Med-CORDEX) by developing high resolution integrated models. AdriaClim will consolidate planning of measures for strengthening the adaptation capacity in Italy and in Croatia also building upon crossborder cooperation.
