Regional Replicators

Podkarpackie (Subcarpathian region) is a region in the southeastern corner of Poland, at the eastern border of the EU, in the northeastern outer part of the Carpathian Mountains. Mountains consist of 46% of the total area.  

Podkarpackie is host to outstanding ecosystems such as virgin forests and grasslands, which are hotspots for biodiversity and habitats for large species. Podkarpackie is also a crucial source of freshwater moving into two major rivers. Climate change forecasts indicate more irregular and heavier rainfall and more frequent intense heat waves to occur. Heavy rains from more intensive precipitation will lead to an increased risk of floods, erosion, and landslides.
