MACIS (Minimisation of Adaptation to Climate Change Impacts on Biodiversity) has reviewed the existing projections of climate change impacts on biodiversity (Olofsson et al, 2008). It is also assessing the available options to prevent and minimise negative impacts for the EU25 up to 2050 and review the state-of-theart on methods to assess the probable future impacts of climate change on biodiversity. It includes this review of possible climate change adaptation and mitigation measures and their potential effect on future biodiversity. MACIS is also developing a series of biodiversity and habitat models that address biodiversity impacts, and are capable of calculating the consequences of the changes in the trends in drivers (WP3). The policy options at EU, MS, regional and local levels to prevent and minimise negative impacts from climate change and from climate change adaptation and mitigation measures are being explored (WP4).
