Climate change has different impact on individual regions and that is reason why we have to adapt to the climate changes on regional levels. The Vipava Valley has extremely favourable environmental conditions for the development of intensive agriculture, but the agricultural sector is threatened by natural disasters (droughts, floods, frost and strong winds), which are due to the impact of climate changes more frequent than in the past.
The LIFE ViVaCCAdapt project objectives are:
- Analysis of the current situation in the Vipava Valley with regard to adaptation to climate change;
- Definition of strategic actions to adapt the agricultural sector to climate changes;
- Preparation of the Strategy for adapting the agricultural sector to climate changes in the Vipava Valley;
- Reconciliation of defined objectives and strategic actions to assess the potential positive and negative impacts of the proposed measures on the environment;
- Establishment of a pilot decision support system 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;
- Evaluation of existing windbreaks efficiency and design of the demonstration centre in order to spread information about windbreaks and their benefits.

Remote sensing of large river hydromorphological characteristics and impact assessment on biotic communities
The project’s aim is to identify and compare impacts of different stressors (hydromorphological alterations, pollution, land use), acting on different spatial scales (reach, segment, catchment), on benthic macroinvertebrate and fish communities in Slovenian large rivers, as well as to analyse the comparability between field survey and remote sensing based hydromorphological...
In this project our task is to monitor the impact of hydropower plant operation on river Soča ecological status/potential, specifically on biological quality elements, hydrological, and physico-chemical quality elements according to the current legislation.
Study was done according to the 8. article of Decree on criteria for determination and on the mode of monitoring and reporting of ecologically acceptable flow. In the study the influence of the existing water abstraction on river Hudinja in Celje on aquatic assemblages was examined and the criteria for...
