Mitigation and adaptation measures to climate change in the Ebro Delta
LIFE EBRO-ADMICLIM (ENV/ES/001182)
The project LIFE EBRO-ADMICLIM (ENV/ES/001182) puts forwards pilot actions for adaptation to and mitigation of climate change in the Ebro Delta (Catalonia, Spain), an area vulnerable to sea level rise and subsidence.
We propose an integrated approach for managing water, sediment and habitats (rice fields and wetlands), with the multiple aim of optimizing ground elevation (through inputs of inorganic sediment and organic matter), reducing coastal erosion, increasing the accumulation (sequestration) of carbon in the soil, reducing emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG), and improving water quality. This type of approach has not been applied so far in the European Union, and it is clearly innovative internationally.Read more
