About the project
Defining accessible water resources in surface and groundwater basins divided by borders is a key issue for water management authorities. These resources were defined separately in the past, without considering the possible links between them.
Due to climate change, the frequency and intensity of hydrological extremes have also increased significantly in recent years. The Southern Great Plain in Hungary is one of those regions which are severely affected by droughts. Studies also show that the annual average temperature in this region is typically higher than elsewhere in Hungary.
The purpose of this project is to create an integrated water resources management methodology. Within the framework of this cooperation, the following results would be achieved:
- river-basin-level identification and mapping of surface and groundwater resources intersected by borders,
- exchange of best practices and expertise between partners,
- development of action plan based on common interests.
