FRAMWAT Final Conference
We have the pleasure to invite you to the FramWat Project’s Final Conference, which will be held in the end of May, 2020 in the frame of a virtual meeting.
The FramWat project supports the idea of using landscape features to help solving environmental problems in water bodies in a sustainable way.
The conference main aim is to present the main outputs and results with active involvement of the relevant stakeholders and invited guests.
Further information and detailed programme is cooming soon.
About FRAMWAT: Framework for improving water balance and nutrient mitigation by applying small water retention measures
FramWat aims to strengthen the regional common framework for floods, droughts and pollution mitigation by increasing the buffer capacity of the landscape. It will do so by using the natural (small) water retention measures (N(S)WRM) approach in a systematic way. So far, the majority of water management and flood protection measures lack innovation and follow more traditional approaches without taking into account valuable ecosystem services provided by nature in the landscape settings.
The FramWat project supports the idea of using landscape features to help solving environmental problems in water bodies in a sustainable way. Partners will develop methods which translate existing knowledge about N(S)WRM features into river basin management practice. This will result in improving the water balance, in decreasing sediment transport, and in enhancing nutrients re-circulation. Moreover, it will provide decision makers with appropriate tools to incorporate N(S)WRM into the next cycle of River Basin Management Plans and offer guidance and raise awareness about the importance of horizontal integration of different planning frameworks.
