Resilience enhancement and water demand management for climate change adaptation - Water2Adapt

Water2Adapt is an applied-research project which seeks to produce policy-relevant knowledge and recommendations for water management and the implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive. In particular, the project will contribute to the economic analysis of water uses, efforts to set up efficient and socially equitable prices for water and water services, and to assess programmes of measures in the river basins...

Water2Adapt is an applied-research project which seeks to produce policy-relevant knowledge and recommendations for water management and the implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive. In particular, the project will contribute to the economic analysis of water uses, efforts to set up efficient and socially equitable prices for water and water services, and to assess programmes of measures in the river basins. In addition, capacity workshops will be organised in the case study regions to increase awareness of the topics to which this project seeks to contribute.

WATER2ADAPT aims to:

  • identify ‘social drivers’ of water scarcity - i.e., the practices which lead to unsustainable consumption and inefficient allocation of water;
  • assess the magnitude and mediating factors of water scarcity- and drought-induced impacts;
  • revisit the performance and wider impacts of the water demand management policies.

  • Resilience and adaptive capacity, that is the ability to withstand and recover from significant disruptions (or to absorb and cushion against damage), will be translated into practical management tool applicable at river basin scale.

    FEEM is the Project Coordinator, leader of the WP1 (management and coordination) and the WP5 (synthesis and policy recommendation – dissemination).
