Sea-level rise caused by climate change and global warming, poses a major threat to coastal regions due to salt-water intrusion and damage to agricultural land. Researchers now urge policy makers to take action before it is too late.
Video: How should India and other countries adapt their agricultural practices to a changing climate? In a new film, researchers explain how they go about in the ClimaAdapt project when developing new rice growing technologies and undertaking capacity building of farmers.
VIDEO: What kind of impacts can climate- and socio-economic change have on European lagoons? In this video, researchers explain the methodology used and highlight some of the outcomes and results from the Lagoons-project, which is soon drawing to a close.
VIDEO: Issues such as contamination from surrounding agriculture, increased tourism and climate change all pose a threat to Europe’s many lagoons - vulnerable ecosystems in densely populated areas. Scientists are now going new ways to secure better lagoon management in future.
