SWURVE – Sustainable Water: Uncertainty, Risk and Vulnerability in Europe

Coordinator: Mr. Christopher Kilsby, University of Newcastle Upon Tyne (UK) – Water Resource Systems Research Laboratory, Department Of Civil Engineering

Timeframe: 01/12/2000 – 30/11/2003

Problems to be solved:

Many attempts have been made to assess the impacts of changes and variability in climate on crucial hydrologic and hydraulic systems such as those used for flood protection, municipal and agricultural water supply and urban drainage. Such systems can be extremely vulnerable to predicted climate changes, but two major problems have affected the assessment of their vulnerability, and planning of how it can be mitigated or avoided.
