Adaptation measures in Romanian agriculture

Adaptation measures in Romanian agriculture

OrientGate Pilot Study 2

November 2014 | Print | Leaflet

Under the OrientGate project’s Thematic Centre on Forestry and Agriculture, two pilot studies were carried out: Pilot Study 1 focused on climate change adaptation in the forests of the Austrian Alps; and Pilot Study 2 investigated agricultural adaptation in Romania. This leaflet describes the activities undertaken and the results achieved at two pilot sites in Romania: one in Covasna County, and one in Caracal County. The two sites have different agro-climatic conditions, thus different adaptation options are available. The pilot study was implemented by the National Meteorological Administration, drawing on its expertise in modelling crop systems and developing risk management tools for extreme climate conditions. The Environmental Protection Agency of Covasna was responsible for assessing local territorial plans and developing environmental strategies at local level. 

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.
