Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East – Climate and Atmosphere Research Centre

Project description

Climate change, atmospheric research centre in Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East Region

The Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East regions face long-standing political and social problems. This is exacerbated by climate change effects such as air pollution, droughts, water shortages, high temperatures and desert dust. Human life is heavily affected and increase migration is seen. The Cyprus Institute (CyI) has extensive experience in climate and atmospheric studies. The EU-funded EMME-CARE project aims to upgrade the Climate Division of CyI to a Centre of Excellence (CoE) in the entire region. It will integrate experimental research and environmental data to elaborate proposals for the public health, agricultural and energy sectors. The CoE will work to generate solutions for society and will also serve as a knowledge hub.
