the Explore2070 project aimed at evaluating the possible impacts of future climate and socio-economic changes on water bodies (surface water, groundwater and coastal water) and biodiversity, in metropolitan France and overseas departments (Guadeloupe, Martinique, French Guyana, and Réunion Island). The project was managed by the French Ministry of Ecology (MEDDTL) and gathered several consultancies and research institutes to establish a general overview of the expected evolutions by 2070. Through both the extent and the variety of the project’s objectives, Explore2070 will provide answers to many questions raised by managers and better evaluate the stakes related to these evolutions.

This solution deals with identifying, designing and implementing a climate change adaptation strategy in the Gaza Strip in order to prepare for and recover from water-related stresses. The overall objective is to assess and quantify scientific, environmental, social and technical aspects of Gaza Strip vulnerability to climate change, followed by a comprehensive environmental, economical, political and cultural analysis of climate change impacts to reach the most efficient, effective and feasible adaptive mitigation interventions.

There is a need for water managers to permanently be informed on and supported by scientific knowledge to make their decisions. This is particularly relevant for what concerns climate change adaptation policy. Some solutions exist in terms of science-policy interface in various domains. For instance an activity on water science policy interface (CIS – SPI) is conducted in Europe to support the milestones of EU Water Framework Directive by linking the research needs relevant to water managers with scientific research advances. This provides a dynamic interface within the Common Implementation Strategy of the Water Framework Directive.

Method for assessing the vulnerability of stream fish species to climate change based on habitat suitability models

This project presents a framework and a method for assessing the vulnerability of 38 fish species to climate change in France. The method is based on the development of habitat suitability models developed for current and future climate conditions. These models included spatially explicit variables related to current and future climatic data (scenario A1B) and environmental features (considered constant in time). The outputs of the model combined to dispersion capacity and uncertainty index (from expert judgments) allowed the construction of vulnerability indicators for 38 fish species. These results provided some guidelines for conservation recommendations in a context of climatic change.

One of the mission of the Adour-Garonne Water Agency is to improve the understanding of issues related to global change and to enhance stakeholders’ awareness in the making process decision (including adaptation, prevention…). Thus, the Adour-Garonne Water Agency was involved recently in a national research project called IMAGINE2030 (ClImate and water MAnaGement: uncertaINties on water resources for the Garonne rivEr basin in 2030 ?).

This solution presents the results of the project “Regional Climate Modeling of the Nile Basin: Preparation of climate scenario outputs for assessment of impacts on water resources in the Nile Basin”. This project is one component of the Climate Change Risk Management Programme (CCRMP), which addresses both climate change adaptation and mitigation issues in Egypt. “The Climate Change Risk Management Programme (CCRMP)” was launched with the overall aim to help Egypt align its climate risk management and human development efforts in pursuing the achievement of MDGs in the face of climate change and the predicted serious threats to the country.

SHORT-TERM AND LONG-TERM PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN AGAINST DROUGHT CAUSED BY GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE IN TURKEY

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (3 votes, average: 3.00 out of 5)
Loading...Loading...

Short-term and long-term cautions in supply and demand levels of water should be taken in order to decrease the effects of drought on economy, environment and social life in Turkey.

 – At supply level : as a long-term caution, the construction of on going dam projects should be quickly completed in order to increase their water storing capacities.  

-  At demand level : as a short-term caution, water losses should be prevented and the applied in-farm irrigation methods should be developed. As a long-term caution, new type crops resistant to drought should be developed. The application of sprinkler and drip irrigation systems should be expanded and supported for water saving.

Improve and develop technologies such as desalination by using renewable energy, reuse of wastewater for artificial recharge and flood water harvesting to increase water supply and to increase energy efficiency. Those techniques will be used in small-scale and at several suitable locations and clusters that are really suffering from water shortage problem in Jordan Valley. In addition, reallocation management will be considered in parallel to the implementation stage.
