CATCH project presented at the Pol-Eco System trade fair (Poland)
Invited by the German Ministry of Research and Education, Jade University and University of Jena organised an international workshop on “Water related resources and hazards” at the Pol-Eco System trade fair in Poznan. The Pol-Eco System is the most important environmental trade fair in central Europe.
CATCH was introduced by Dr. Helge Bormann (Jade University), who explained the underlying concepts such as the Water Sensitive City Theory and related pilot activities of the CATCH partner institutions. Further research activities on flood risk management were presented by Jena University (Germany), the Polish Academy of Sciences (Warsaw) and the University of Torun (Poland).
Since climate change requires adaptation activities in the North Sea Region as well as in the Baltic Sea Region, applicability and transferability of concepts were discussed in detail. For the future, joint research activities are envisaged to share experience and to further develop the underlying concepts applied in CATCH.
