A new project to adapt the River Tordera (Catalonia) and the River Serpis (Valencia) to the effects of climate change has begun. This will involve the participation of citizens and stakeholders in these basins. This will be done by giving a boost to two existing governance spaces: the Taula de la Tordera and the Serpis Platform.
The manual, in which the CREAF researchers Anabel Sánchez and Annelies Broekman have participated, summarizes the stages of the BeWater project and the lessons learned in the creation of adaptation plans between scientists and local society.
Last November, two members of CREAF’s staff attended a workshop organized by the European Commission which was also attended by the Network of Centres of Excellence in Water Sciences (NEPAD). At this meeting held in Accra, the BEWATER project was presented as a successful case.
A diverse group of stakeholders took part in a dynamic workshop to evaluate the best options to manage water in the Tordera River Basin in a more sustainable and adaptive way. The 17 participants included researchers, managers, farmers and other citizens who live and work in the Basin. The meeting took place in Santa Maria de Palautordera on 17 June 2015. Key options identified included adaptive forest management, the implementation of environmental flows and better citizen participation spaces.
The digital magazine Revolve Water makes a description of the physical, environmental and socio-economic characteristics of the four river basins an gives an overview of the work done so far in the BeWater project on developing an adaptation plan for the four basins.
