Climate Alert Smart System for Sustainable Water and Agriculture
CLIMALERT provides climate information in a format that the forthcoming users find easy to understand and/or to incorporate into decisionmaking. CLIMALERT’s main goals are:
• Strengthening the link between climate research, water resources and agriculture
• Improving techniques and tools (mobile app, web-dynamic maps) to incorporate weather and climate information into the assessment of risks and decision-making in agriculture and water management practices
• Contributing to a global framework to improve the exchange of information on weather forecasts to help decision-makers in applying adaptation and mitigation strategies
Co-development of user-friendly tools(mobile app and web-dynamics maps) for proper risk management related to climate.
Development of guidelines and recommendation of good practicesto help decisionmakers in applying adaptation and mitigation strategies.
Encouragement of adaptive management strategies for water and agriculture, ameliorating the water use conflict, and delivering environmental and socio-economic benefits.
My name is Cláudia Pascoal and I am Professor of Ecology at CBMA/IB-S at the University of Minho, Portugal. My research addresses the impacts of global change on biodiversity, ecosystem functions and services in freshwaters. Currently, I am leading the CLIMALERT project aiming at co-developing innovative tools for climate services. I want to disentangle effects of multiple stressors related to climate change, while proposing adaptation and mitigation strategies with social and environmental benefits.
The project is being carried out by a multidisciplinary team with expertize in i) social and economic sciences (UFZ) to guarantee the sustained dialogue between users and providers throughout the co-production project; ii) climate sciences (IPMA and UFZ) to select climatic and hydrological indicators and models; iii) engineering (IB-S/UMinho) to co-develop tools and technologies that meet stakeholder demands; and iv) ecology (ICRA and CBMA/IB-S/ UMinho) to assess the environmental and the socio-economic benefits from the project.
The team is closely cooperating with relevant stakeholders during the co-production process. This is the case of water managers (e.g., AdP Águas de Portugal / AdN Águas do Norte, Catalan Water Agency) and farmers (e.g., The Portuguese Farmer Confederation (CAP), Portugal, SOGRAPE Vinhos Portugal).
