CECILIA - Central and Eastern Europe Climate Change Impact and Vulnerability Assessment
The project CECILIA delivered a climate change impacts and vulnerability assessment in targeted areas of Central and Eastern Europe. Emphasis was given to applications of regional climate modelling studies at a resolution of 10 km for local impact studies in key sectors of the region. The project included studies of hydrology, water quality, and water management (focusing at medium-sized river catchments and the Black Sea coast), air quality issues in urban areas, agriculture and forestry. The high spatial and temporal resolution of dense national observational networks at high temporal resolution and of the CECILIA regional model experiments fed into investigations of climate change consequences for weather extremes.
