The creation of the toolbox is part of the European project SILMAS and is focusing on the different existing lake management tools in the Alpine region. The toolbox is a set of information sheets explaining the different best practice tools in the alpine lakes on: shore zone construction, navigation, fishery, leisure, lake management tools (lake contracts, lake commissions, lake plans) and tools with an informative or educative purpose.
Integrate all existing climate change response approaches in to the UN Convention on international watercourses
How the communities consider the equity in the UN convention framework on climate change and on international watercourses and the Nile cooperative framework agreement through a human rights approach to ecosystems based capacity-building. A rights writing workshop by the communities during a mediation for the design of the management plan of transboundary biospheres: A tool for human rights and ecosystems-based climate governance?
Access to Drinking Water to Rural Communities during floods to strengthen their resilience and to adapt to Climate Change. Pilot project of an Immediate Response Team (IRT) network.
In case of emergency situations (floods, tsunami, earthquake…), safe drinking water is one of the first thing missing. To provide safe drinking water in the immediate aftermath of a crisis, technology alone is not the solution. Aquasure has developed a standardized package of trained person and module of equipment to be ready for deployment in the most extreme situation on short notice.
Une stratégie intégrée du fleuve: l’eau est un bien qui doit être intégré dans son espace naturel
EARTH OBSERVATION FOR GROUND WATER EXPLORATION, MANAGEMENT, VULNERABILITY AND PROTECTION: THE GOTHAA APPROACH
The GOTHAA (Geologie Observation de la Terre pour l’analyse d’aquifère) as developped since the year 2000 to support exploration of new ground water resources using earth observation techniques. The approach has been tested in various climatic, geologic, land use contexts in Argentina, Egypt, France, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Libya.
Wiz + is an environmental programme co-financed by the European Union. The solution aims at assessing short and long term drinking water availability so that water data and environmental and infrastructural costs can be taken into consideration during the spatial planning process. This happens mainly through the creation of an IT platform useful for local authorities that will be involved in decision making.
Case study on Climator: a French research programme on the impacts of climate change on water & agriculture
The suggested solution consists in the development of a research programme on the impacts of climate change on the French agriculture: Climator. A wide range of institutions is involved, and the programme value a multi-disciplinary approach. One of the priority of the programme was to assess the impact of climate change on French crop production and identify ways for animal breeders to adapt to climate change.
In this study, we macroscopically estimated global change in water supply and demand in the middle of this century by utilizing existing statistical data.
Ecosystem based adaptation through cultivation of organic cacao in two sub watersheds of the Río Sixaola
The ecosystem based adaptation approach in two different sub watersheds of the Río Sixaola integrates the local indigenous Bribri communities of the Middle Sixaola and the lower Yorkín area into the activities. The pilote sites had been chosen using the CRiSTAL tool (Community-Based Risk Screening Tools-Adaptation & Livelihoods). The adaptation approach consists of two different components:
- Cultivation of organic cacao trees (Agrodiversification) as a matter to prevent high plague populations in traditional platations
- Strengthening and promotion of micro basin water management
Decision support tool to incorporate climate change into water resource planning, operations and design
Led by the Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA), our model is an evidence-based approach that incorporates the best insights from across the key technical specialties relevant to the water community and addresses the interconnections between the science, finance and operational components of the water community. The final product is presumed at this stage to be an online document, but there have already been expressions of interest from AGWA partners to take these products and to use integrate them within software tools. And “final” is also presumed to be a “first edition,” to be explored, refined, and developed by the community of specialists and practitioners over time.
