Research project ClimateWater

The overall objective of the project ClimateWater (Bridging the gap between adaptation strategies of climate change impacts and European water policies) was 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 formulated 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 project brought together scientific and policy experiences on the existing and/or missing links between climate change and water management and helped to

  • identify research needs on climate change impacts on water cycle and resources,
  • develop and apply methodologies for adaptation measures to climate change,
  • develop scenarios of water demand.
