PREFACE

This Communication has been prepared, written and compiled by Ms Nicoletta Kythreotou of the Department of the Environment of the Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environment. Contributions by other authors are acknowledged accordingly in the text.
Cyprus became an Annex I Party on 1/1/2013. Consequently, this National Communication is the first submitted by Cyprus as Annex I Party, and it will be prepared for the first time using Reporting Guidelines for Annex I Parties. Following CP and CMP decisions the rest of Annex I Parties would submit their 6th National Communication.
Following however, the need to maintain consistency of references to the numbering of NCs, we chose to entitle this report as "6th National Communication" to provide consistency of titles among Annex I Parties.
The present National Communication acts as a consolidated National Communication covering the first, second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth National Communications of Cyprus. The report contains several historical developments that the reader can easily connect to the appropriate NC.
This sixth National Communication is accompanied by the 1st Biennial Report that has to be submitted on the 1st January 2013, according to decision 2/CP.17.

Climate Change in Cyprus : Impacts and Adaptation Policies

Cyprus Economic Policy Review, Vol. 6, No. 1, pp. 21-37 (2012)

"Abstract
This paper provides an overview of facts and projections related to climate change in Cyprus until the end of the 21st century. It highlights the main climate change impacts foreseen and presents recommendations for the preparation of a national adaptation strategy. Coping with climate change is possible, provided that proactive actions are taken by both the public and the private sector. Public authorities need to set clear priorities and implement well designed policies. Most importantly, adequate monitoring mechanisms should be set up in order to provide much needed data which can send early warnings to policy makers and the public and can help avoid large natural and economic damages at a later stage. Enabling private adaptation investments and properly pricing the use of natural resources are key priorities for investing in a climate resilient economy."

Projection of climate change in Cyprus with the use of selected regional climate models

"This report examines the potential future climate changes in Cyprus using projections derived by several Regional Climate Models (RCM) simulations. Firstly, the reference values of various climatic parameters in Cyprus during the period 1960-1990 (control period) are presented. Subsequently, the changes between the future period 2021-2050 and the control period 1961-1990 are calculated. The future period 2021-2050 has been chosen specifically for the needs of stakeholders and policy makers to assist their planning in the near future, instead of the end of the twenty-first century as frequently used in other climate impact studies."

"The aim of this study was to investigate the impacts of projected climate change in the tourism industry in Cyprus (Republic of Cyprus) using both ‘‘Tourism Climate Index’’ (TCI) and ‘‘Beach Climate Index’’ (BCI). TCI refers to tourism activities mainly related to sightseeing, nature-based tourism, and religious tourism etc., while BCI represents beach tourism that constitutes 85 % of tourism activities in Cyprus."

Water resources of Cyprus under changing climatic conditions : Modelling approach, validation and limitations

"We examine trends in the water resources of Cyprus by focussing on water flux changes in the important Kouris catchment. Our modelling approach is general and is a synthesis of an adapted conceptual daily rainfall-runoff model, radiation transfer models that use high resolution MODIS satellite climatological data and GCM scenarios for future climatic change. We used climatic data as input to our models, downscaled to the catchment resolution from two climate scenarios : the mild RCP2.6 and the extreme RCP8.5, to estimate water resources by the end of the 21st century. The models show that the present mean annual rainfall resource of 174 Mm3 will be reduced to 162 Mm3 and 132 Mm3, for the mild and extreme scenario, respectively. The present mean discharge of 21.5 Mm3 into the Kouris dam from the catchment will decrease to 16.6 Mm3 and 6.9 Mm3 under the mild and extreme scenario, respectively"
