Sardinia’s adaptation to climate change
Lead Partner: University of Sassari
Sustained socio-economic development in Sardinia requires sustainable use and optimal allocation of limited resources.
Reaching resource efficiency, carbon neutrality and water sustainability under Climate Change scenarios in Sardinia faces challenges by a fast-decreasing population and a relatively low income per capita. The assessment revealed that sustainable use of water resources can be reached, also under climate change projections, by implementing relatively few technological and governance solutions.
Investing in the development of the forestry sector will be beneficial for reaching carbon neutrality. However, present national and regional policies need to be deeply re-elaborated as they pose severe restrictions to the sector. To reach carbon neutrality, Sardinia must increase the energy efficiency of buildings and accelerate power generation from renewable resources.
