Description

ASTRA assessed regional impacts of the ongoing global change in climate and developed strategies and policies for climate change adaptation. The project addressed threats arising from climate change in the region, such as extreme temperatures, droughts, forest fires, storm surges, winter storms and floods. In order to elaborate adaptation and mitigation strategies regional and local spatial planners and stakeholders were involved throughout the project lifetime. The project was awarded with the Amber Tree Award by the INTERREG office for its foresighted vision (financed by INTERREG BSR)
