Project description

Historical hydrological patterns can no longer be solely relied upon to forecast the water future. Having realised this, a new paradigm for water management is needed. WaterCAP provides recommendations for future implementation of directives affected by changed climate. The cluster will focus on recommendations relevant to the policymakers on: 1) Water quantity/quality issues, 2) Impact analysis to predict climate change impacts on different types of water bodies and 3) Adaptation strategy incl. cross sector involvement and the participatory approach.
