Finding the right measures to avoid water shortage (NO REGRET)

This object has been archived because its content is outdated. You can still access it as legacy


The main aim of the No Regret project was to study different aspects of water shortage and drought that are important to the North Sea Region. Four European countries have worked together to bring water shortage and its impact on land use on the political agenda. No Regret has contributed to put water shortage as part of policy-making and is now on the political agenda around the North Sea Region. Within the No Regret project each partner developed local integrated strategies by researching various measures to improve the availability of fresh water. Different sources of fresh water were researched for the use of drinking water, water for nature, water for urban development and water for agriculture. Several pilot projects were carried out in the field of water management for agriculture under water shortage conditions. http://www.noregret.info/website/publications/PublicationsinEnglish
