The CarpathCC project aimed to carry out an in-depth assessment of the Carpathian region’s vulnerability to climate change and to establish a diversified portfolio of sustainable adaptation measures based on the active cooperation of international experts in the field of environmental protection. Spatial area of interest included the Carpathian Mountains chain (including the Transylvanian Depression) and the adjacent areas of the Carpathian Basin (Pannonian Depression), including countries such as Hungary, Slovakia, Poland, Czech Republic, Serbia and Romania.
The project represented a real support for policy makers, being elaborated in close connection with the most important stakeholders from the seven countries participating in the Carpathian Convention. Within the project, the vulnerability of environmental factors and forest ecosystems was assessed in order to propose concrete measures to adapt to climate change and was structured into seven specific modules. The project activities also aimed at identifying the most relevant decision-makers in the region and their involvement in the project activities through active participation in the organized workshops in order to ensure the applicability of the project results.
