Strategic tools to support adaptive, integrated water resource management under changing utilisation conditions at catchment scale : a co-evolutionary approach.

Objective

The AQUADAPT project will generate knowledge and tools to support strategic water resource planning in semi-arid contexts with an emphasis on the co-ordination of planning with other aspects of environmental, land use, and socio-economic development. The project is characterised by a co evolutionary perspective, the application of a cross-disciplinary enquiry framework, and emphasis on practical outputs, informed by end-users. Research will characterise co evolutionary trajectories and identify robust configurations of technologies, policies and distribution arrangements. Actions focus on an analysis of the spatial and temporal relationships between climate change, land use, governance arrangements, human behaviour, water quality/quantity, and environmental integrity. Output supports decision-making and stakeholder participation in water resource planning and management. The consortium combines contributions from theoretical and empirical research, industry and potential end-users.
