The 2-Seas programme area is increasingly confronted with problems related to water scarcity and drought. Consequently, the regions within the 2 Seas area will need to develop strategies to use their water resources in a more efficient and optimised way.
In order to do so, adequate knowledge is required about the water system’s short-term and long-term vulnerability and coping capacity, in relation to drought problems. With the data at hand, authorities struggle to estimate when local water levels become critical, to define from which watercourses water can still be subtracted and to develop long-term policies for drought-resilient areas.
Therefore, this Interreg 2 Seas project proposal pursues the following:
1. Building a knowledge base of water flows within a pilot area.
2. Developing an integrated policy for drought resilience.
