CLIMATE CHANGE AND VARIABILITY: IMPACT ON CENTRAL AND EASTERN EUROPE (CLAVIER) - FP6
• Project coordinator: Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (Mpi-M), Hamburg, Germany
• Period: 2006 – 2009
The Institute of Geography colaborates with several profile institutes from Germany, France, Hungary, Austria, Bulgaria and Romania to a European Union priority project regarding the effects of c1imate change and variability on the environment and society.
The project coordinator of CLAVIER, Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg, Germany, is a well-known institute with an international recognition for its fundamental researches undertaken for the elaboration of comprehensive models concerning the Earth System.
The CLAVIER project inc1udes 3 major objectives which are the main research themes for 7 workpackages (WP). Each workpackage is structured in well defined activities and has c1ear deliverables and milestones.
The CLAVIER objectives are:
-Investigation of ongoing and future c1imatechanges and their associated uncertainties in Central and Eastern European Countries (CEEC);
-Analyses of possible impact of climate changes in CEEC on weather pattern and extremes, air pollution, human health, natural ecosystems, forestry, agriculture and infrastructure as well as water resources;
-Evaluation of the economic impacts of c1imate changes on CEEC economies, concentrating on four economic sectors, which are agriculture, tourism, energy supply and the public sector.
The structure ofthe CLAVIER project underlines the importance ofboth the overall study and the regional research network for CEEC aiming at facilitating the elaboration and dissemination of research outcomes for decision-makers at regional and national levels.
