BINGO PROJECT TURNS TWO
01 August 2017
During this time, the six research sites across Europe—the Tagus River (Portugal), Badalona (Spain), the Troodos Mountains (Cyprus), the Wupper river basin (Germany), the Veluwe (Netherlands) and Bergen (Norway)—received climate predictions downscaled to local level, and hydrological and hydrodynamic models are currently being developed. The results of the risk analysis, which will be published shortly, will show the anticipated impact of climate change extreme weather events on the water cycle and its uses.
The scientific and practical work involved in this project, in which SUEZ Advanced Solutions Spain's Urban Drainage Office is taking part by coordinating the Badalona research site, is being carried out through a continuous process of exchange and discussion with local agents (Badalona Town Council, Àrea Metropolitana de Barcelona (AMB) and Aigües de Barcelona) in workshops and via the Community of Practice (CoP) virtual platform.
The BINGO consortium has published 30 deliverables and has met 15 objectives. It has also held three meetings with the full project team and more than 100 sector-oriented meetings focused on local, regional and thematic issues. Furthermore, BINGO has been disseminated on more than 10 international forums.
