Climate proofing the Danube Delta through integrated land and water management

Posted on 29 September 2014

The document lays the foundation for a transboundary climate adaptation
A unique ecosystem and home to more than half a million people, the fragile Danube Delta is already now
experiencing the first impacts of climate change. Earlier spawning of herring, less snow in winter and higher water
temperature in summer have been reported. In the future, unprecedented sea level rise, water scarcity, and more
frequent and severe extreme weather events will be the major drivers of change. Policy-makers and civil society
in the region must act now to take steps to adapt to the challenges posed by climate change.
