Adaptation to Climate Change of the Mediterranean Agricultural Systems
clic to enlarge
ACLIMAS is a demonstration project funded within the Sustainable Water Integrated Management (SWIM) programme of the European Commission (EC). The project addresses the priority - Water and Climate Change - by promoting in 6 Mediterranean countries/target areas the demonstration / implementation / dissemination of the research results of previous EC-funded initiatives.
The overall objective is to bring a durable improvement of the agricultural water management and a broader socio-economic development of target areas in the context of adaptation to climate change, increasing water scarcity, and desertification risks. ACLIMAS pursues an holistic multidisciplinary border-crossing approach that integrates a set of locally-tailored technical adaptation measures with socio-economic and environmental aspects of water management in Mediterranean agriculture.
The project is coordinated by the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM), Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Bari (IAMB). ACLIMAS has started in January 2012 and lasts 4 years.
For more information please, contact the Project Coordinator Prof. Dr. Mladen Todorovic.
