Photo Tordera 1The participatory process promoted by the BeWater project in the River Tordera and other Mediterranean basins, aims to involve society in a dialogue on current water uses and to collectively develop water management plans adapted to future climate change scenarios.

Future climate change projections indicate that extreme events, like droughts and floods, may increasingly occur in the Mediterranean region.

More than 30 participants from around Europe gathered in Barcelona, Spain, for the first meeting of a new European project which will involve the active participation of society in water adaptation to global change.

The stage for collaboration over the coming three and a half years was set at the BeWater project's Kick-off Meeting, held on 13 – 15 January. In line with the approach of the project, participatory techniques were used in the meeting in order to define working methods, agree a common language and identify the challenges involved in implementing this complex project effectively.

Science in Society: Adapting to Climate Change in the Mediterranean Basin

Thursday, 02 January 2014 Posted in News, BeWater News

PPhoto1launchrojections of future climate change point to increasing water scarcity and drought in the Mediterranean region. This will cause serious socioeconomic loss and have significant environmental impact.

In this context, BeWater, a new European project, aims to promote dialogue and collaboration between science and society in sustainable water management in the Mediterranean. Led by the Centre for Ecological Research and Forestry Applications (CREAF), project partners will organise participatory processes involving scientists and other stakeholders in four pilot river basins throughout the Mediterranean (Catalonia, Cyprus, Slovenia and Tunisia). Each will identify and share the challenges of climate change in their particular region and the various water management options available. Based on this information, all stakeholders will design joint plans for adaptation to climate change in their regions. "These plans will allow an increase in the resilience of social and ecological systems linked to each river basin," said Diana Pascual, CREAF researcher and one of the project coordinators.
