Short description

Aim of the project:
The overall aim of the project is to increase knowledge about the effects of climate change on precipitation patterns at local and regional level, and to contribute to the establishment of climate-change adaptation measures (e.g. drainage system) of the pilot area in order to contribute to the reduction of damage resulting from heavy precipitation.

Summary of the activities:
The project activities consist of developing a new methodology to provide the basis for planning proper drainage capacity, conducting an impact assessment for extreme precipitation, formulating a priority list of investment tasks helping the decision-making, and implementing on-site demonstration measures (e.g. surface drainage ditches, simulations, obtaining water management permits etc.).

Awarded Grant Amount: 776,074 EUR
