Final Climate Water Symposium

August 8, 2011

The overall objective of the Climate-Water project is to study European and international adaptation measures and strategies related to climate change impacts and how these are taken into account in water policies. The project is formulating a coherent framework on adaptation strategies of climate change impacts on water resources, water cycling and water uses of the society and nature with special regard to those that water policy has to take into account when considering climate change impacts.

The final symposium of Climate Water project  will introduce the major results of the project, such as

  • Climate change impacts on the hydrological cycle, water resources and water management reviewed for major topic categories: Impacts on the society and economy as direct impacts on life and health of the population; Indirect impacts on the society through direct impacts on economic activities; Water related impacts on nature, terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.
  • Adaptation strategies are the most important results, being reviewed in 6 major categories: water demand side, supply side, damage prevention, main water industries, adaptive capacities and control of water pollution.
  • The identified research needs, where 11 very important new or novel fields are considered, such as ecohydrology. The final output is a list of advises to upgrade water-impact related EU policies, such as a novel approach to WFD/RBMP and new strategies to flood control.

Programme of the symposium:

13 October,2011

-Session on the analysis and synthesis of water related climate change impacts
-Session on the analysis and synthesis of metodologies of adaptation measures

All conclusions of the symposium discussions will be uploaded to the document library on the platform.  Please note that the number of participants is limited.
