The Environment and Energy Efficiency Operational Program (EEEOP) of Hungary provides the source for the further development of the National Adaptation Geo-information System (NAGiS). The climate vulnerability assessment methodology will be developed, the climate impact assessment of the most important Hungarian economic sectors and critical infrastructure will be carried out among other tasks.
The National Adaptation Geo-information System (NAGiS) is a multipurpose geo-information system that can facilitate the policy-making, strategy-building and decision-making process related to the impact assessment of climate change and founding necessary adaptation measures in Hungary.
EIONET is a partnership network of the European Environment Agency (EEA) and its member and cooperating countries involving approximately 1000 experts and more than 350 national institutions.

The registration process is introduced shortly too. The newsletter can be downloaded here.
Paris - The REC organised a side event at COP21 in partnership with the Central Asian REC (CAREC) on Innovative decision-making tools for low carbon development and climate resilience in Europe and Central Asia.
The second issue of the NAGiS Newsletter presents interim results of the project from the fields of flood risk analysis, assessing the effects of climate change on groundwater, development of the NAGiS database and others. The Newsletter can be downloaded here.
A NAGiS Project workshop was held in Szentendre Hungary, at the REC Conference Center on 19 October 2015. The aim of the workshop was to present interim results of the EEA Grants funded NAGiS Project, and that Hungarian and Norwegian experts may discuss their opinions on these results, which can be a help for further development of the system. The event aimed to reveal possibilities for future cooperation too.
The NAGiS Newsletter reports on results and ongoing works in the Project. The first issue highlights the most important events and results of the period since the beginning of the project. The Newsletter can be downloaded here.
