Joint efforts to increase water management adaptation to climate changes in Central Europe (TEACHER-CE)

Description:

Climate change consequences are already visible in central Europe, and call for better risk management coordination. TEACHER-CE addresses this need by integrating and harmonizing results of previously funded INTERREG, Horizon2020, and Life projects into the TEACHER-CE Toolbox. This tool will focus on climate-proof management of water related issues such as floods, heavy rain and drought risk prevention, small water retention measures and protection of water resources through sustainable land-use management. The direct local and regional implementation will help municipalities and regions in adapting their processes to the changing climate conditions.

The project specific objectives are:

  1. Development and validation of a framework of tools (Toolbox) for integrated and cross-beneficial strategies and measures for climate change adaptation and prevention/reduction of related risks
  2. Capacity building for climate change adaptation and risk prevention through intense interactive stakeholders' involvement on national, regional and local level and across sectors in Central Europe
  3. Boosting integrated participatory water management by interaction with target groups when downstreaming innovative tools and strategies for climate change adaptation and prevention of related risks in Central Europe
