The objective of ECCLIPSE is to develop a common framework for assessing the impacts associated with climate change and the adaptation to such impacts of ports in the SUDOE space.
The main project results will be:
- • The development and implementation of a common methodology will make it possible to assure the consistency of the results to be obtained for each port by using the same scientific and technical criteria so that the conclusions drawn for the entire port network are consistent. This also makes it easier to extend the application to other European ports.
- • ECCLIPSE will provide the mechanisms for designing and implementing the measures to adapt ports to climate change. These measures will have a common scientific basis for the whole European port network.
- • Finally, the results of the climate projections will be stored in a climate database by port, which will allow the study of the evolution of the climate change impact in specific locations when planning and designing new port infrastructures
