AdriaClim – final conference


On May 9, 2023, Ravenna hosted the final conference of the @ADRIACLIM project, which involved 19 partners, including scientific institutes, universities, environmental protection agencies, and regional and local authorities. The aim of the conference was to present the results of the project to all interested parties and to discuss the relationship between science, politics and society.

The participants of the conference were international experts of different professional profiles – from representatives of universities, research centers, various professionals and technicians working and active in the field of climate change and coastal adaptation, to political actors, decision makers, journalists and representatives of non-governmental organizations. From the Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries, the conference was attended by Ph.D. Natalija Dunić, Ph.D. Tomislav Džoić, Ph.D. Danijela Bogner, Ph.D. Gordana Beg Paklar, and Anđela Jelinčić.

A constructive discussion developed among the participants based on three important themes of the conference. The topics of the conference were:
-international strategies for coastal zone protection
– the role of science in decision-making – the comparison of different practices and viewpoints
– adaptation measures at the local level – the importance of communication and participation of all stakeholders

The conference was followed by the final event of the project, where the results obtained were presented. Among others, scientists from the Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries presented the research they conducted in two pilot areas:

– Dubrovnik – Neretva area
– Split – Dalmatian area

Unfortunately, the effects of climate change are also felt in these areas. Therefore, despite the completion of the project, the AdriaClim Institute will continue to monitor the changes in environmental parameters that are most sensitive to climate change.
