Soclimpact - Project to forecast climate impacts on European Islands (University de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria)

The climate system is in danger and continued emission of greenhouse gases will cause further warming and changes. Islands are particularly vulnerable to Climate Change (CC) consequences. This project for European Islands looks at these impacts and how to react.

Policy makers must have accurate information about likely impact chains and about the costs and benefits of possible strategies to implement efficient measures. SOCLIMPACT aims at modelling downscaled CC effects and their socioeconomic impacts in European islands  for 2030–2100, in the context of the EU Blue Economy sectors: Tourism, Aquaculture, Maritime Transports and Energy.
