PERFECT-INFRA-CLIMA

– AN OPEN-DAY EVENT FOR RAISING AWARENESS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION ISSUES

November 4th, 2021 - Webinar

 

Climate change has a variety of impacts on health, ecosystems and the economy, often interacting with other factors, such as changes in land use.

These impacts are expected to become more severe in the coming decades. If not addressed properly, these effects will be very costly, affecting the health of the population and ecosystems, damaging goods and infrastructure, and some impacts may be irreversible.

As mitigation measures cannot prevent all the effects of climate change, complementary actions are also needed to adapt to the dynamic evolution of the climate and through the use of intelligent monitoring systems.

The main aim of the event is to transfer knowledge from specialists to the students from various study programs regarding the climate services and monitoring and assessment of environmental degradation.

TARGETED AUDIENCE: Students from Environmental Engineering, Geography, and Agronomy domains
