Water scenarios For Copernicus Exploitation
The overarching objective of the Water-ForCE project is to develop a Roadmap for the water component for the future Copernicus services, addressing the current disconnections between remote sensing and in situ observation research, and to deliver clarity in terms of the needs and expectations of the public and private sectors of the core Copernicus Program and the wider research and business innovation opportunities.
Living rivers, living sediment, living cooperation
Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary and Serbia submitted a UNESCO application for the world's first 5-country biosphere reserve Mura-Drava-Danube in April 2020. With a total area of 930,000 hectares and a length of 700 kilometres, the wildlife along the Mura, Drava and Danube will become the largest river protection area in Europe.
IDES - Improving water quality in the Danube river and its tributaries by integrative floodplain management based on Ecosystem Services
The IDES project aims to develop and implement a transnational integrative ecosystem service approach to improve water quality management and thus to generate win-win-situations for multifunctional floodplains instead of trade-offs.
