HYDROCARE, a Spatial Development Project on Water Management and Risks

The project HYDROCARE - Hydrological cycle of the CADSES regions has been approved in the 3 rd call of the INTERREG IIIB - CADSES neighbourhood programme of the EU . CADSES stands for Central, Adriatic , Danubian and South-Eastern European Space. The project will last 2 years starting January 1 st 2006, its budget is about 2.5 M€ and it involves 11 institutions from 6 countries ( Italy , Germany , Greece , Poland , Romania , and Slovak Republic ). The project is coordinated by an Italian Lead Partner, the Consorzio Interuniversitario Nazionale per la Fisica delle Atmosfere e delle Idrosfere - CINFAI ( National Consortium of Universities for the Physics of Atmospheres and Hydrospheres ), which associates about 20 Universities all around Italy. The mission of HYDROCARE is to study the hydrological cycle of the CADSES area by adopting an integrated and multidisciplinary approach. Some preliminary information on the project can be found on the web-page http://www.cadses.net/en/projects/apprpro.html?projectId=1017 ; the official web-site of HYDROCARE is http://www.hydrocare-cadses.net.


HYDROCARE
originates from the acknowledgment of the strategic relevance of the water for the linked issues of economic development and environmental protection. The proposed integrated approach based on the coupled analysis of both water resource and hydrometeorogical events derives from the appraisal of the suitability of transdisciplinary approaches to complex problems.


HYDROCARE
entails a set of quite different and complementary partners covering a large portion of the whole CADSES region. Local authorities, scientific institutions, and technical services participate with their diverse expertises and experiences. Collaboration is foreseen between bodies based in both old and new EU member states as well as in non-member states.


The public presentation of HYDROCARE will take place in Potsdam on Tuesday February 14th 2006 at 15.30 in the conference hall of Hotel Mercure (Lange Brücke, 14467 Potsdam , Germany , Tel : +49-331-2722 Fax : +49-331-2720233 E-mail : H1582@accor.com ). Attendance will include representatives of the diplomatic bodies in Germany of the other 5 countries involved in the project, representatives of EU institutions, representatives of the INTERREG IIIB - CADSES programme, representatives of National German and Italian institutions, representatives of the Brandeburg Lander and of the city of Potsdam , as well as media professionals. The presentation is organized as follows: a one-hour session comprising brief speeches from representatives of some institutions and of the INTERREG IIIB - CADSES programme, presentation of the project by the Lead Partner, then a round-table discussion and finally a coffee-break. The detailed programme of the day will soon follow.


The public presentation of HYDROCARE has been jointly organized by the Lead Partner CINFAI and by the German Project Partner, the Potsdam-Institut für Klimafolgenforschung -PIK ( Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research )

Summary of HYDROCARE

 
HYDROCARE wishes to develop an integrated system capable of assessing the impact of hydro-meteorological events on the water resources in the CADSES region. Emphasis will be put on the development of effective transnational tools for a rational exploitation of the water resource and the management of the extreme hydro-meteorological events, with the purpose of preserving and enhancing economical and environmental welfare. Such managing tools will be illustrated also in practical terms by performing some case studies. Other main topics of the project will be the reconstruction of the large and basin-scale hydrological cycle in the CADSES area, to be obtained by suitably merging observations (both local and remote) and models, and the development of a high level ICT network within a transnational frame, with the purpose of collecting and exchanging hydro-meteorological data. Provision of relevant information to end-users such as farmers, entrepreneurs, public administrations and agencies is also foreseen.
 

Objectives of HYDROCARE :

Development of an integrated view of the water resource management, bridging directly the evaluation of the quality and quantity of the water resources of the CADSES area with soundly based tools able to reconstruct and model the large and basin-scale hydrological cycle.
Development of effective, internationally shared tools for public and private institutions for the correct management of the water resources as well as for planning future development of the CADSES area, with particular attention to dynamics of the costs of potable water.
Development of set of standards at European level for the collection, evaluation, storage and interpretation of the hydro-meteorological data coming from different sources, with particular regard to extreme events of great potential impact on the welfare of the population and on the state of the environment.
