Periodic Report 2 - CLARIS LPB (A Europe-South America Network for Climate Change Assessment and Impact Studies in La Plata Basin)

Project ID: 212492
Funded under: FP7-ENVIRONMENT


The CLARIS LPB project aims at projecting the regional climate change impacts in La Plata basin (LPB) in South Eastern South America focusing on the 2010 - 2040 and 2070 - 2100 periods, and at designing adaptation strategies for land-use, agriculture, rural development, hydropower production, river transportation, water resources and ecosystems in wetlands. To reach such objectives, the project gathers more than 190 scientists from various disciplines. Their specific objectives cover a large range of activities.

The periodic report provides a summary of the main project objectives and a thorough overview of the work performed through the work packages, including project common activities and climate studies. All these activities allow the project now to focus on 21st century projections of climate, agriculture and hydrology conditions, and to initiate the design of adaptation strategies with stakeholders focusing on their vulnerabilities.
