Jaroslav Cerni Institute for the Development of Water Resources, in cooperation with sixteen partner organizations from ten Southeast European countries, participates in the project "Mitigating Vulnerability of Water Resources under Climate Change” within The South East Europe Transnational Cooperation Programme, which aims to mitigate the impact of climate change on water resources.
Water resources are under increasing pressure originating from land use and climate change. Accompanied with economic changes in the SEE region, the land use pattern is expected to change, too. Both processes will have severe imapacts on water resourcse in general and drinking water resources in particular.
In order to meet these challenges CC-WARE is focusing on the adaptation to climate change by developing a common position paper for vulnerability reduction leveraging the potentials of ecosystem services, land use change, improved water use efficiency and economic incentives for water management to decrease the vulnerability of water resources. Especially, forests, wetlands and grasslands are important ecosystems, which together with their management emerged as important means for a sustainable future drinking water supply.
Building on the detailed analysis of the water vulnerability regarding quantity as well as quality and the assessment of drinking water availability under changing climate and socio-economic condition in the considerably differing project areas as well as benefitting from the comprehensive dialogue of experts from the fields of land use and water resource management, the partners participating in the CC-WARE project are developing efficient management options tailored to the meet the specific requirements of the water sector. The envisaged development of national action plans specifying the necessary interventions in time and space will in future facilitate the challenging task of local and regional decision makers.
The local and regional application of the knowledge, solutions and recommendations generated by the partners of the CC-WARE project will contribute to the sustainable development of the South-Eastern European Region. Тhe present and future vulnerability will be assessed based on a jointly elaborated methodology. Through consultations, workshops and publications, gained knowledge will be transferred to relevant policy makers and stakeholders.
