Project summary

 

In Hungary seasons are shifting, temperatures are rising, and there is an increased risk of drought, forest fires and floods, as well as increased damage caused by growing storm intensity. The NAGiS objectives are to facilitate capacity-building in climate change adaptation, improve the existing data collection, processing and climate modelling, and become a single point of reference for objective climate change information. A multipurpose meta database will be developed, the NAGiS database. The main target group for NAGiS are analysts and experts, public authorities as decision-makers, the research community, and the general public. NAGiS will contribute to the in-depth analysis of the scientific, socio-economic and technical aspects of climate change as well as the formulation of adequate climate change adaptation strategies and measures.
