Opening Access to Climate Knowledge

Opening Access to Climate Knowledge

Conclusions of the OrientGate project

December 2014 | Print | Leaflet

Many countries in South Eastern Europe (SEE) are adversely affected by the impacts of climate change, which are expected to become even more severe in the future. Thirty-two institutions from 13 European countries established the OrientGate partnership in order to work together to address the climate change challenges facing the SEE region by fostering the integration of scientific climate knowledge into policy planning. This leaflet presents the most valuable aspects of the project in the words of the partners involved in the six pilot studies and in the creation of the OrientGate Climate Data Platform, one of the main project outputs, which provides a single entry point to all the data produced during the project.

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.
