ABOUT THE PROJECT

Data about the Life ViVaCCAdapt project; Adapting to the impacts of climate change in the Vipava Valley

The purpose of the project is to establish measures to avoid the adverse effects of climate change on agriculture in the area of the Vipava Valley.

The European Commission, with the help of LIFE project LIFE15 supported project CCA / SI / 000070 Adaptation of agriculture to climate change (CC) in the area of the Vipava Valley. It focuses on measures to reduce the use of water for irrigation and reduce the damage caused by strong winds. The project is divided into several work packages;

  1. Preparation of regional analyses to support adaptation to CC.
  2. Development and testing of the system of decision-making on irrigation with a developed application that will growers involved in the project, press the recommended time and meal irrigation, taking into account information about Water retention properties of the soil, the current amount of water in the soil, the plant needs water depending on the stage, and a weather forecast.
  3. Analysis and Implementation of green windbreaks covering the measurement and analysis of wind conditions and characteristics of the wind in the Vipava Valley and impact analysis of existing wind barriers and implement a new demonstration area of green windbreaks on the surface of 1000 m2.

PROJECT OBJECTIVES

ANALYSIS OF SITUATION

Analysis of the current situation in the Vipava Valley with regard to adaptation to CC.

DEFINITION OF ACTIONS

Definition of strategic actions to adapt to CC. Draw up a set of measures in collaboration between different sectors (agriculture, forestry, hydrology, transport, tourism, urban planning, etc.) with expert assessment to analyse possible environmental problems triggered by proposed agricultural measures.

RECONCILATION OF OBJECTIVES

Reconciliation of defined objectives and strategic actions. Determination of the main (primary) and the other (secondary) measures and propose their sequence of implementation.

ESTABLISHMENT OF DSS

Establishment of a pilot decision support system (DSS) for irrigation in order to rationalize water consumption in accordance with the requirement of the Water Framework Directive and by default in the Rural Development Programme of Slovenia

WB EVALUATION

Evaluation of existing WB efficiency (simulations). Design the demonstration center to plant WB in order to spread information about them and their importance.

STRATEGY DISCUSSION

Comprehensive strategy for CC adaptation taking into account the specifics of the area discussed.

ADAPTING TO THE IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE IN THE VIPAVA VALLEY

EXPECTED RESULTS

The strategy of adaptation to climate change.

Operating systems support decision-making on irrigation.

Increasing the area of plant windbreaks.
