Pilot sites of the FFEM project

 Criteria for selection of pilot sites     

The pilot sites were selected according to the following criteria:

  • Pilot sites representative of ecosystems/bioclimatic characteristics emblematic of the region;
  • Pilot sites representative of ecosystems/bioclimatic zones considered particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, and/or showing signs of visible decline may due to climate change;
  • The vulnerability of pilot sites is considered at three levels: threats to survival, change of range, impacts on functions(goods and services);
  • Ecosystems/bioclimatic zones, where synergies exist with other data and studies completed or in progress;
  • Areas with historical climate data existing and where the impact of climate change is evident.
