AQUALOGY ORGANISES A TRAINING SESSION ON PLANNING AND ADAPTATION TO GLOBAL CHANGE FOR HYDROGRAPHIC BASINS
03 October 2012
Yesterday, Aqualogy held the first training session on planning and adaptation to global change in the Llobregat Basin, attended by staff involved in planning and the operation of the water sector.
Climate projections show that water resources are vulnerable and could be significantly affected by global change, with various impacts and consequences for societies and ecosystems, especially in vulnerable areas such as the Mediterranean.
The methodology and results presented have been developed within the framework of the Water Change project, to last for three years, funded by the Life+ programme of the European Union and coordinated by the Water Technology Centre (CETaqua). The Water Change project has analysed the effects that global change will have in the medium- to long-term on water resources, its ultimate goal being to propose adaptation measures to address the negative impacts of these future changes.
This session will highlight Aqualogy's leadership and ability in the area of water planning, aspects that help hydrographic agencies and water companies to develop long-term plans, integrating measures to adapt to global change.
The quality and technical excellence of the research project was recently recognised by the Global Honour Award of the Project Innovation Awards from the International Water Association (IWA), in the planning category.
