Climate vulnerability assessment for the Prutul de Jos (Lower Prut) Biosphere Reserve

The findings are chilling: 27 plant and 91 animal species particularly vulnerable to climate change; hotter and drier weather in unique wetland and lake ecosystems; decreasing water levels in the lakes at the heart of the reserve; the prospect of floods and forest fires; and the livelihoods of the local population hanging in the balance. This assessment proposes adaptation measures intended to guide support for this UNESCO biosphere reserve.
