The OrientGate project aims to implement concerted and coordinated climate adaptation actions across South Eastern Europe (SEE). The partnership comprises 19 financing partners, 11 associates and three observers, covering 13 countries, that together will explore climate risks faced by coastal, rural and urban communities, contributing to a better understanding of the impacts of climate variability and climate change on water regimes, forests and agroecosystems.
The main objective of the project is to communicate up-to-date climate knowledge for the benefit of policy makers, including urban planners, nature protection authorities, regional and local development agencies, and territorial and public works authorities.
The three-year project was launched in July 2012 and is co-funded by the
South East Europe Transnational Cooperation Programme.
The project is coordinated by the Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Climate Change.
