The rise of sea levels and societal adaptation to climate change

Titolo: The rise of sea levels and societal adaptation to climate change

Linea di finanziamento:  EUniWell Well-Being Research Incubator Programme

Periodo:  01/08/2023 - 31/07/2024

Rising sea levels and other forms of climate change have significant consequences for agriculture and food production. Planning for these impacts and considering the most appropriate responses will be the focus of the project.

The first aim of the project is to map the distribution of the sea level rise in every partner country. The preliminary mapping will allow us to have a clear overview of the salinisation of agricultural fields and coastal areas. This first goal will be achieved by the University of Florence research group which is composed by three senior researchers and three junior researchers.

The second step will be applied in every member country with an on field evaluation of the effects of sea level rise in the different scenarios. Every local unit will evaluate negative externalities and will provide a scenario for the future, focusing on best adaptation strategies. Together with a desk research activity, few on field visits will allow to have an overview about the threats and challenges of specific localities (hot spot) with a high value for the regional development (cultural, social and economic values). During the workshop has emerged as a possible adaptation strategy the saline agriculture. The University of Florence has an ongoing project already funded by the EU for the study of adaptation strategies for agricultural areas. The knowledge and results can be shared with the other EUniWell partners in order to achieve to local adaptation strategies.
