This case study was originally published on the Climate-ADAPT website – for more information please visit the full case study pageClimate-ADAPT aims to support Europe in adapting to climate change by helping users to access and share data and information. The platform includes the Climate-ADAPT database that contains quality checked information that can be easily searched.


The Kis-Sárrét area, a part of Hungary’s Körös-Maros National Park, hosts numerous plants, animals, and habitat types of EU community importance. Over the past 200 years, extensive marshes were reduced and altered as a result of water regulations between 1856 and 1879. As a consequence, many areas constantly or temporarily covered by water disappeared, and the traditional management of the natural landscape changed. In addition, the area has suffered from decreasing precipitation and increasing temperature during the summer months.

To address these impacts, a specific climate-change adaptation management plan was developed in 2013. The Climate-Adapted Management Plan (CAMP) has not been updated since then. However, several measures were implemented through the CAMP and in following years in order to manage the water regime of wetlands.
