Students reading for the Master in Environmental Management and Planning (MEMP) with the Institute of Earth Systems recently participated in a research mission to the Parco Regionale della Maremma in Tuscany, Italy.

Through a programme of lectures, extensive hands-on fieldwork and discussion seminars during their week-long visit (4th to 11th July 2010), the students addressed a range of environmental management concerns with a focus on climate change issues and their potential impacts on the management of the park and on the sustainable planning and management of neighbouring regions. Specific topics covered included the use of indicators for monitoring the impacts of climate change, the impacts of climate change on water resource management, the implications of climate change for protected area management and regional biodiversity conservation, measurement and evaluation of changes in coastal dynamics, auditing of carbon emissions and environmental impact assessment of energy infrastructure.

The work carried out during the research mission will contribute to the students’ assessment within a second-year study-unit on the science and management of climate change.

This research mission was sponsored by Malta International Airport, and was also supported by AirMalta and by the EUR-OPA Major Hazards Agreement of the Council of Europe.
