Date du début: 5 juin 2005,
Date de fin: 4 janv. 2008
Focusing on the Baltic Sea Region (BSR), the project "Developing Policies & Adaptation Strategies to Climate Change in the Baltic Sea Region" (ASTRA) assesses regional impacts of the ongoing global change in climate. Its aim is to develop adequate climate change adaptation strategies and policies, together with relevant stakeholders, such as planners and decision makers.The ASTRA project uses climate change models and climate impact research studies to develop regional and local impact scenarios. In the development of adaptation strategies it concentrates on risk awareness and the formulation of policy recommendations.The transnational approach is vital for the entire project due to the transnational character of the addressed problem: climate change. The project points out the impacts of a changing climate as a challenge for the entire Baltic Sea Region and assesses the results and develops adaptation strategies to maintain the sustainable environmental and socio-economic development in the region.Astra's partners comprise various research institutes and regional planning offices around the Baltic Sea Region, broken down to 19 inner and 16 outer circle partners. Lead partner of the project is the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK).The following activities were undertaken in the course of the project:- Assessment of climate change impacts (extreme temperatures, droughts, winter storms etc.) on regional and local level.- Presentation of climate impact research results for the BSR and development of strategies to adapt to the consequences of climate change effects (WP1: Adaptation strategies for regional planning purposes)-Presentation of climate impact research results for the BSR and discuss the consequences of climate change effects through international conferences, meetings and local seminars (WP2: Dissemination)- Development of Policies and Adaptation strategies for the BSR (WP3) Achievements: The main concrete results and outputs are the following:1. Methods and tools for spatial planning taking into account long-term socio-economic and environmental climate change effects.2. Presentation of climate impact research results for the BSR and strategies to adapt to the consequences of climate change effects.3. Development of pan-Baltic adaptation strategy and providing country specific national strategies.4. Climate Impact studies for each case study city or region (Gdansk, Riga, Espoo, Kokkola, Klaipeda, Pirkanmaa Region , Kokkola, Tallinn and Pärnu, Estonian archipelago, Curonian spit, Oder river basin, Salaca river basin).
