Final Report - RISKBASE (Coordination Action on Risk Based Management of River Basins)

Project ID: 36938
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


Research projects which focused on components of river catchments' hydrologic cycle pinpointed the necessity to apply a risk-based, integrated basin management approach, which would ensure resources' sustainability while maintaining activities' profitability and addressing human needs.

The EU-funded RISKBASE project aimed to review and synthesise existing knowledge on basin management so as to facilitate further policy development and implementation.

This final activity report presents the project background and major objectives and summarises the undertaken work. Moreover, the main RISKBASE results and the proposed policy principles are analysed in terms of their applicability and potential impact. Finally, the document provides suggestions to stakeholders and decision makers in order to motivate the expansion of integrated catchment management practices.
