Climate Change and Impact Research: the Mediterranean Environment (CIRCE)

The CIRCE Integrated Project, funded under the European Commission's Sixth Framework Programme, aims to highlight the impacts of climate change and how people may adapt in the Mediterranean regions of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

Discussion of climate change is often limited to a few aspects: why, how and what is going to happen next. What if now we start considering climate change in a more complex and multifaceted way? What if we look at it as a result of social dynamics, economic issues, effects on human health, impacts on agriculture and forest and many other criteria with the help of new scientific methods? These are issues this project aims to highlight.
