 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

The Project ClimateWater is aimed as the first step on the analysis and synthesis of data and information on the likely (known, assumed, expected, modelled, forecasted, predicted, estimated etc.) water related impacts of the changes of the climate with special regard to their risk and to the urgency of getting prepared to combat these changes and their impacts. The Project will identify all adaptation strategies that were developed in Europe and also globally for handling (preventing, eliminating, combating, mitigating) the impacts of global climate changes on water resources and aquatic ecosystems, including all other water related issues of the society and nature. Research needs in the field of ‘climate impact on the water cycle and water users’ will be identified with special regard to enable the ranking of adaptation action in the light of the magnitude of impact on water resources and the urgency of the action needed. The most important output of the project will be the identification of gaps that would hinder the implementation of the EU water policy in combating climate impacts on water.

Introduzione (Teaser)

The European Union must address the effect of climate change and how its impacts can be mitigated through policies for water use. The EU-funded Climatewater project will help decision makers to make the best choices.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Climatewater is identifying strategies for reducing the effect of climate change on water resources and the aquatic environment. The project is also developing a framework for conserving water resources that are used both by society and in nature.

Major impacts of climate change include flooding, drought and water scarcity, which can also cause deterioration in water quality. Flash floods can result in an increase in heavy metals and pathogens in the water supply. The effect of climate change on natural systems such as forests must also be addressed in order to preserve these key habitats and the biodiversity they contain.

Changes due to climate change can also include more extreme weather events, rising sea levels and increased storm surges. Changes in water levels will have serious consequences for river navigation and hydropower. The nuclear power industry also requires large amounts of water for cooling purposes.

The consortium contains partners with both scientific and policy experience that can identify research needs and gaps in water related policies that might hinder the EU's response to climate change. The Climatewater project will therefore play a key role in preparing European institutions, industry and infrastructure for the challenges that lie ahead.
