Final Report - TWINLATIN (Twinning European and Latin-American River Basins for Research Enabling Sustainable Water Resources Management)

Project ID: 18436
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This is the executive summary report of the TWINLATIN project full period. The strategic objective of TWINLATIN was to fill gaps in knowledge and methods in order to enable implementation of a harmonised water resource management approach in Latin American river basins, addressing the European Water Initiative and using the European Water Framework Directive as a guiding reference approach.

The report lays out the range of the countries that the project scope involves and how the information about their basins was used in the course of the project. It describes the work packages in detail and finally refers to the conclusions of this research effort. Twinning has significantly raised the competence level of the third country partners, as well as that of stakeholders and end-user water authorities in all countries. Language difficulties and the efforts needed for translation and basic technological support have required more resources than anticipated, but the general conclusion of the consortium is that the advances clearly outweigh these difficulties.
