This work, carried out by the CLE in direct response to the SAGE Vallée de la Garonne, is part of the study on the socio-economic impact of climate change on water uses. This work, which is carried out by the SMEAG on behalf of the CLE, has been based on an extensive consultation, including two workshops involving local stakeholders from the 6 geographical commissions of the SAGE.
Following the Garonne 2050 study, the study is underway to assess the socio-economic impacts of the SAGE Vallée de la Garonne climate change adaptation scenario, in implementation of measure II.10 of the SAGE.
The first stage consisted in assessing vulnerabilities to climate change, using the vulnerability assessment tool developed by Acterra as part of the LIFE Eau&Climat project.
Two consultation workshops involving local stakeholders from the SAGE geographical commissions served as the basis for the diagnosis. They were held on 29 November and 1 December 2022 respectively in Portet-sur-Garonne (31) and Fourques-sur-Garonne (47). These workshops were not intended to rely on quantitative data, which are difficult to handle, to measure the vulnerability of water uses. Their aim was to encourage stakeholders to identify the regional challenges by combining climatic and non-climatic factors, through the impacts of climate change. More than 50 people attended.

The next stage of the study involves the construction of adaptation pathways. In response to the vulnerabilities identified, it will be about identifying the actions that will constitute the adaptation scenario according to the degree of ambition validated by the members of the monitoring committee. This time, we'll be testing Acterra's second adaptation pathway tool. Stay tuned!
