SPECIFIC OBJECTIVE

Improve the climate change monitoring and planning of adaptation measures tackling specific effects, in the cooperation area

LEAD PARTNER

Regional Agency for Prevention, Environment and Energy in Emilia Romagna

TARGET GROUPS

  • General public
  • Local, regional and national public authorities and related entities
  • Regional and local development agencies, environmental agencies, regional associations
  • Farmers and companies of the agricultural, industry and services sectors
  • NGOs
  • Education and training centers, Universities and research institutes 

The scientific community largely agrees that the main cause of global warming is linked with anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG), measured as carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e). Regardless of international efforts to mitigate climate change, communities throughout Adriatic Sea need to adapt themselves to the changing environmental conditions.

The GECO2 project will introduce innovative measures to monitor and offset CO2 emissions through an effective cross-border cooperation.

GECO2 will directly involve the agricultural sector, urging it to adopt sustainable farming practices and interfacing it with industrial and services companies in order to ensure the start of a voluntary credit carbon market, with gains both from an economic and environmental point of view.

The whole project will guide industry and consumers towards new green market opportunities and will help local governance to improve strategies to tackle climate change.
