TransformAr: Climate Adaptation Pathways Finalized for the Fisheries and Agriculture Sector in Terralba

This week, a participatory workshop was held in Terralba as part of the TransformAr project to finalise the adaptation pathways developed with local operators, particularly in the fisheries, agriculture, and biodiversity sectors. 

The outcome of the workshop is an action plan for each adaptation pathway, in which stakeholders to involve, timelines, monitoring indicators, and success factors for each scenario have been identified. 

The workshop was led by Dr. Francesca Etzi from the MEDSEA team, an expert in environmental rehabilitation. "In this journey that has engaged us over the past year with operators from the fisheries and agriculture sectors - explains Etzi - and whose activity revolves around the Marceddì pond and lagoon, we have built a pathway of adaptation to climate change considering the impacts on key sectors of the territory: starting from simulations of possible scenarios like in the case of long periods of drought, flooding, low levels of sea oxygenation and related consequences. The novelty is that operators are increasingly aware of the ongoing changes and the direct and indirect impact on their activities." 

An adaptation strategy employed by TransformAr’s adaptation pathways aims at risk mitigation. 

TransformAr aims to develop and demonstrate solutions and models to achieve rapid and far-reaching transformational adaptation across Europe. At the pilot site of the San Giovanni pond in Terralba, groundwork is being laid for the installation of sensors that will allow real-time detection of water quality changes in the pond with the aim of preserving fish stocks and ecological conditions through the management of a "smart gate".
