Adaptation of Agricultural and Rural Areas in the Atlantic Area to Climate Change
The agricultural sector in the Atlantic Area has high exposure to climate change through increases in extreme weather events such as higher intensity and frequency of storms, drought and flooding and precipitation variability. There are huge uncertainties in the way climate change will affect agricultural and food systems. The focus of this webinar is on adaptation of agricultural and rural areas in the Atlantic area to climate change. The webinar will include presentations on:

A). Farmers Attitudes and Preferences for Climate Change Adaptation: An Irish case study
- Dr. Edel Doherty, Whitaker Institute, NUI Galway

B). Study of Local Communities Views for a New Culture of Risk in the Face of Climate Change
- Julia James, The Climatologic Association of Middle Garonne and South-West of France (A.C.M.G)

C). Climate Change Media Communication in Ireland and Portugal
- Neide P. Areina, Centre for Social Studies, University of Coimbra, Portugal

D) Soils in partnership
- Dr. Laurence Couldrick, Westcountry Rivers Trust

E) Mitigating Soil Erosion Risks in Atlantic Vineyards
- Diego Intrigliola, Spanish National Research Council (CSIC)

The webinar is part of the RISKAQUASOIL project, which aims to improve the resilience of the Atlantic rural areas to climate change. The RISKAQUASOIL project contributes to better coordination for the detection, risk management and rehabilitation for rural territories (maritime and terrestrial areas), especially for agricultural purposes. RISKAQUASOIL is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the Interreg Atlantic Area Cooperation Program.
