Bilateral meeting of the National Adaptation Geoinformation System

On 7-8 November, 2016 a bilateral meeting was organised in Budapest about the National Adaptation Geoinformation System (NAGiS). Now that the service is up and running, the two day event looked at the lessons learnt so far and  demonstrated the use of the system from a practical point of view. The service was presented to an international audience. The event also provided a good opportunity to look at the further development opportunities of the system.

The aim of the NAGIS was to develop 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 the adoption of necessary adaptation measures in Hungary. Considerably NAGiS aims to play a key role in addressing the global challenge of climate change and developing smart adaptation measures tailored to regional, local needs. The projects awarded (C11-1, C12-11, C12-12, C12-13) covered the setting up the IT infrastructure for the NAGIS and providing the needed data layers for sectors like climate data, digital terrain data, water, forestry, land-use and biodiversity related data, agriculture, tourism, socio economic and also improved climate projections. All the data layers are accessible in a 10kmx10km mapping system for Hungary.
