MASTER ADAPT aims to develop a methodology addressed to Local Authorities (Regions, Metropolitan Cities and Groups of Municipalities) to mainstream adaptation to climate change in their plans and programmes, as a key element for the sustainable management of their own territory. 

The territories involved in MASTER ADAPT are: Sardinia Region, Lombardy Region, City of Sassari, Metropolitan City of Venice Metropolitan, Metropolitan Area of Cagliari, Union of Cities in Northern Salento, an aggregation of Municipalities in northern Milan area. 


This project plans different actions to improve the mitigation of the impact of droughts and floods at the catchment level. All these actions will be implemented in different catchments of Europe and South Africa, covering contrasted environmental conditions and specific problematic.

The networking activities between LIFE MEDACC and IMDROFLOOD projects results in contribution of LIFE MEDACC results about climatic and hydrologic droughts registered in the study area to enrich the information of IMDROFLOOD.


The Life Clinomics project proposes to launch new investment processes of public bodies, especially municipalities and private companies of certain representative sectors, to reduce their vulnerability, anticipate climate impacts and increase their resilience, improving competitiveness and increasing occupation.


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.


REAGRITECH aims to demonstrate a method for recycling water resources at parcel scale, in order to optimize the resources for its best use in the ecosystem and therefore achieve a sustainable and integrated river basin, by improving the chemical characteristics of the reused water and, therefore improve the natural environment surrounding them.


This project will  contribute  to  the  scientific  study  of  drought  in  Spain,  and  will  develop innovative tools  for researchers, managers and the society.

The networking activities between LIFE MEDACC and DESEMON projects results in the contribution of IPE with the data analysed about droughts in the study area of LIFE MEDACC.

ECTAdapt project - Interreg POCTEFA

ECTAdapt objective is to develop a common policy on adaptation to climate change in the Catalan Cross-Border Area (ECT). This project has the objective to raise awareness to diferent audience targets (population, economic actors, vulnerable groups, administrations, youth, ...) to the challenges of adapting the cross-border territory to the expected climate change and encourage them to participate in the action impact.

NET-SCARCE Consolider

NET-SCARCE is a network that builds on the scientific heritage received from the SCARCE project and aims to consolidate the multi-disciplinary network established in its parent project in order to provide insight into the current challenges related with water scarcity under global change. There is a growing concern on relevance of global change (climate, land use, socio-economy, and hydrology) that was on line with the SCARCE project objectives, both in the Mediterranean area and beyond.


This  project  will  develop  a  tool  for vegetation  monitoring  by  means of  an  ecohydrological  model,  calibrated  by means  of  hydrological  data.  The  model will  be  run  for  the  last  decades  by means  of  meteorological  data,  which  allow  to determine  in  real  time  the  vegetation  status  and  to  establish  risk  alerts.  The  tool  will  be  calibrated  and implemented  in different continental national protected areas of Spain,  located in  the  Iberian  Peninsula.


The project aims to demonstrate the feasibility of a VINEYARDS VIRTUOUS CIRCLE (VVC) as a local strategy to mitigate climate change contributing to meet the goals to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG); in line with the European Union’s energy-climate package also known as 3*20 and, specifically, boosting the increase of renewable energy production to contribute up to 20% of EU’s energy needs.
