Charting the Course Together: Researchers and Tauragė Community Forge Climate Resilience

In a joint initiative, scientists from the Lithuanian Research Centre for Agriculture and Forestry (LAMMC) and researchers from the VTDK convened on November 16 in Akademija to deliberate on Tauragė’s strategies for adapting to the effects of climate change. The discussion centered around the findings of a prior session where the Tauragė community identified potential actions to enhance the city’s resilience to climate change.

During the session, LAMMC scientists, Ph.D. students, and researchers added their expertise to the list of proposed actions generated by the Tauragė community. Utilizing the PRIA (Prospective Rapid Impact Assessment) method, the scientists systematically evaluated the ideas based on four crucial criteria: the initiative’s impact on nature, its potential to mitigate social threats, its implications for local businesses, and its effectiveness in addressing territorial threats.

The outcomes of this scientific evaluation will be subjected to portfolio decision analysis, allowing researchers to propose a set of priority actions to the Tauragė community. The next phase of this collaborative effort will involve a follow-up discussion between representatives from Tauragė and the scientific community. This platform will provide an opportunity to delve into the results, exchange insights, and explore potential joint initiatives.

This scientific engagement underscores Tauragė’s commitment to leveraging expertise in crafting effective responses to climate change. By incorporating the insights of scientific minds into the community’s proposed actions, Tauragė aims to develop a comprehensive strategy that addresses environmental, social, economic, and territorial challenges. Keep an eye on this space for further updates on Tauragė’s innovative approach to climate adaptation.
