DesirMED: Nature-Based Solutions for Climate Adaptation, Regional Comparison at the Mid-Year Assembl

The DesirMED project recently held its General Assembly online on June 19 and 20 to review the progress of activities in the first semester. This meeting saw the participation of all scientific partners and regional representatives to assess the first six months since the project's launch. 

DesirMED aims to strengthen the adaptive capacities of leaders and communities using nature-based solutions. These solutions leverage natural resources and ecosystems to mitigate the effects of climate change while simultaneously promoting biodiversity and the well-being of local communities. The goal is to transform climate adaptation from an abstract concept into concrete and measurable actions that can serve as a model for other areas of the world. The project involves implementing adaptation strategies in five demonstration areas, including Sardinia, and three replicating areas. 

During the two-day meeting, there was an exchange of perspectives and experiences among the regions on various topics related to governance, local community involvement, funding methods for NBS, and several types of interventions were presented. 

The Autonomous Region of Sardinia (RAS), as the leader of the regional cluster which includes MEDSEA, presented one of the nature-based solutions (NbS) planned within the project. This solution aims to improve climate change resilience in coastal areas. 

The next meeting is scheduled to take place in person at the beginning of 2025.
