Actions

The main implementation Actions of the project are:

C1 Knowledge capitalization in the three project areas

The aim of this action is to capitalize existing knowledge on the agricultural sectors of the regions of Crete, Sicily and Cyprus with a special focus on the six pilot areas, as well as, to examine how climate change is affecting (or is expected to affect) the agriculture of the project areas.

C2 Review and assessment of the national and European policy framework on agriculture and evaluation of the available adaptation options

During this Action, a review and assessment of the existing framework policy supporting the adaptation of agriculture to climate change took place, both at European and project implementation level (i.e. Crete, Cyprus and Sicily), while the developed national/regional adaptation plans for the agricultural sector were examined.

In addition, the available techniques and methods for addressing climate change impacts on agriculture were identified and evaluated. To this end, specifically designed questionnaires will be distributed to experts and stakeholders engaged in the field.
