Policy briefs

Participation of stakeholders is widely acknowledged to enhance the quality and acceptance of water management and environmental decision-making processes in general. With regards to river basin management, the link between participation and climate change adaptation is not fully exploited.

BeWater responds to this gap by delivering recommendations aiming to strengthen policy and institutional frameworks in tackling global change impacts within water management and adaptation planning. These recommendations target the decision-makers from the local to European level and draw on the lessons learned and experiences made throughout the duration of the BeWater project across the four case study river basins.
