CARTIF PROJECTS

Regions4Climate

Building resilient communities

Description

The Regions4Climate project aims to collaboratively develop and demonstrate a socially-just transition to climate resilience. 

Based on cross-sectorial roadmaps developed together with regional stakeholders, the project will create and implement innovations combining sociocultural, technological, digital, business, governance, and environmental solutions to reduce the vulnerability of European regions to the impacts of climate change.

 

Objectives

  • Regions4Climate will systematically demonstrate climate-resilient society, based on full scale technological and social innovations providing reinforced adaptive capacity and minimised vulnerability to climate impacts, in line with the Paris Agreement and European Climate Law.
  • Develop a comprehensive operational framework to guide and support a wide range of local and regional stakeholders to co-create, test, optimise and replicate scalable, cost-effective, locally-attuned, multi-sectorial and cross-border solutions for enhanced regional resilience to the impacts of climate change.
  • Scale up and deploy innovative socio-technological climate resilience solutions, through collaboration and “twinning” between front-runner and less experienced regions vulnerable to similar climate risks and impacts.
  • Generate and validate suitable solutions for just societal transformation and building climate resilience at the regional and local level through tailor-made measures matching local needs.

Actions

  • Guide R4C region´s shared vision for implementing innovative solutions for climate adaptation and establish R4C regional innovation action management structure and procedures, including demonstration implementation roadmaps.
  • Lead the regional innovation action in Castilla y Leon.
  • Develop and apply a unified approach across regions based on System Dynamics (SD) and Causal Loops Diagrams. 
  • To collaborate in the monitoring and assessment. 

Expected Results

  • Develop a unified regional development roadmap for each of the 3 challenges that can be applicable to other regions. 
  • Implementation of a smoke biofilter of a greenhouse biomass heat system.
  • Study of the increase in productivity of a greenhouse with increasing CO2 concentration.
  • Searching for crop combinations and new connections in local waste utilisation. 
  • Develop and apply a unified approach across regions based on System Dynamics (SD) and Causal Loops Diagrams.

R&D Line

  • Research in new systems and improvement of crops: biological fight, adventitious control, plant rotation and association, pest bio-resistance, yield improvement, RNAi and plant genetics strategies and urban agriculture solutions.
