A structured network for integration of climate knowledge into policy and territorial planning (ORIENTGATE)
Start date: Jun 30, 2012, End date: Dec 30, 2014 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The OrientGate project will foster concerted and coordinated climate adaptation actions across the SEE region. The project will explore climate risks faced by coastal, rural and urban communities; contribute to a better understanding of the impact of climate variability and change on water regimes, forests and agro-ecosystems; and analyse specific adaptation needs in the hydroelectricity, agro-alimentary and tourism sectors. The principal scope of the project is to convey the up-to-date climate knowledge to policy makers who may best benefit from it, that is urban planers, nature protection authorities, regional and local development agencies, territorial and public works authorities. The principal project results include six pilot studies of specific climate adaptation exercises, a data platform connected to the EU Clearinghouse on Climate Adaptation, capacity enhancing seminars and workshops, working partnership among the hydro-meteorological offices of the SEE countries. Achievements: • Analysis of climate simulations • Existing adaptation legislation• Map of currently used meteorological indices with respect to climate change• Proposed set of indicators to harmonise climate change monitoring• Reports pilots forestry and agriculture• State of play adaptation policies and sectorial actionFor more information see:
