The Life Clinomics Project: Improved territorial resilience to climate change

Together, the Montseny Biosphere Reserve and Alt Penedès District Council are working to foster the resilience of local Mediterranean organizations in the Life Clinomics project. To do so, they have calculated their vulnerability indicators and have begun to develop plans to adapt to climate change.

These two organizations, together with the Consortium for Environmental Policies of Terres de l’Ebre, represent the territories where the actions of the Life project will be developed: Montseny, Penedès and Terres de l’Ebre.

The aim of Life Clinomics is for public bodies to set in motion new investment processes to reduce their vulnerability to climate change, anticipate its impacts and increase resilience. By doing so, they improve competitivity and increase employment in agroforestry, fishing and tourism industries.

Plans to adapt to climate change

The development of strategies and action plans to adapt to climate change in the Montseny and the Penedès have benefited from Lavola’s experience in climate change and participatory processes. Among the various actions carried out are the drafting and assessment of proposals for climate change adaptation actions and the streamlining of a series of meetings for MeTACC, a territorial platform for adaptation to climate change.

For every Life Clinomics territory there is a MeTACC platform. The meetings, organized and streamlined with our in-house methodology, Meetfulness, have sought to validate the project’s conclusions, prioritize and define actions, and present the results obtained.

These results will subsequently be included in the climate change adaptation plans of each territory and comparisons will be made between the various plans as well as between a third territory, Terres de l’Ebre, where Life actions are currently being rolled out.
