AMICE : A coordinated strategy for the Adaptation of the Meuse to the Impacts of Climate Evolutions on floods and low-flows with the perspective of sustainable development in the Meuse international catchment basin.

Description:

This transnational project is about the adaptation of the Meuse and its catchment to the impact of flooding and low waters from climate change. Working together are 17 partner organisations from Germany, Belgium, France and the Netherlands. The aims of AMICE, which unites public authorities, universities & NGOs from 5 NWE regions, are:

1) develop a basin-wide climate adaptation strategy, coordinated transnationally, focused on water discharges and the functions influenced by them. The strategy development will take into account climate scenarios, on-going projects, existing measures and the EU Floods Directive , with a particular focus on floods & low-flows.
2) realise a set of measures against low-flows & floods, profitable for the international basin of the Meuse and that can be used by other river basins in NWE.
3) reinforce and widen the partnership between stakeholders of the Meuse basin, and increase the exchange of knowledge and experience on prevention, preparedness and protection against flood & drought risks.
4) engage the local population and stakeholders by improving their understanding of climate change, sustainable development, catchment basin functioning, risk consciousness of water hazards and the sense of belonging to a common river basin, across administrative and language borders.
