Newsletter of the OrientGate project
The OrientGate project aims to coordinate climate change adaptation efforts in South Eastern Europe (SEE) by building a lasting partnership between communities that produce climate knowledge and communities that apply that knowledge in regional planning. The project newsletter provides partners with a means of exchanging information and best practices.
In Issue 2, the editorial by Elisabeth Gerhardt of the Austrian Federal Research and Training Centre for Forests, Natural Hazards and Landscape discusses the impacts of climate change and forest management practices on the quality and quantity of drinking water resources, and the effects of extreme climate events on the agricultural sector. Alongside articles on the launch of the EU Adaptation Strategy and on the Climate-ADAPT information platform, the newsletter also contains a round-up of project activities and meetings.
The OrientGate project is implemented with the contribution of the REC's Environmental Financing and Climate Change and Clean Energy Topic Areas, and is co-funded by the South East Europe Transnational Cooperation Programme.
