Climate Gateway – Issue 3

Climate Gateway

Newsletter of the OrientGate project

November 2013 | Print | Periodical

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.

Issue 3 features an editorial by Ariel Milosevic of the Republic Hydrometeorological Service of Serbia, which is leading the project’s work package on mapping and harmonising data and downscaling. The issue contains articles on the work of the project’s Thematic Centre on Urban Adaptation and Health; and reports from a regional workshop in Austria organised by the leader of the Thematic Centre on Forestry and Agriculture, and a workshop held in Brussels during the EC Open Days 2013. The newsletter also introduces the data platform being created by lead partner CMCC; and two reports that will contribute to the project’s regional planning cross-sectoral study.

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.
