2nd Outermost Regions Forum for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries

The European Commission organized the 2nd Outermost Regions Forum for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, a networking event, where SOCLIMPACT took part in a special panel entitled “Blue Economy and Climate Change Adaptation”.

Important subjects considered were: the barriers and drivers for OR to familiarize with planned or implemented Adaptation to Climate Change, and how #ORs can be integrated to EU Adaptation Strategy.

SOCLIMPACT project Coordinator, Dr. Carmelo León (ULPGC), had the opportunity to share with experts and stakeholders the risks associated to Climate Change Adaptation in EU #outermost regions (OR), (Cyprus, Malta, Baltic islands (Übersetzun, Fehmarn, Rügen, Usedom), Balearic, Sicily, Sardinia, Corsica, Crete, Azores, Madeira, Canary, Martinique, Guadalupe.) as well as potential actions to counteract their effects in #BlueEconomy sectors: Coastal and Maritime Tourism, Aquaculture, Marine Energy and Maritime Transport.
