KATER II

CC-WaterS: the partners.

The main objective of CC-WaterS is to ensure sustainable and safe future water supply, which is influenced by climate and landuse changes. In order to achieve this goal in the most efficient way, joint transnational action with a multisectoral and multilevel approach is required.

The reason for selection of the participating countries is to represent the geographical and meteorological diversity of SEE, and to integrate the complementary expertise of the partners. Three types of partners from 9 countries, representing a multi-sectoral consortium, complement their functions and implement the activities to achieve the project objectives: governmental bodies, research institutions and end users representing national, regional and local levels with transnational orientation.

Water and environmental agencies contribute towards implementing water legislation as well as sustainable water resources management and are competent for framing water fees and permits, climate change and and use patterns and related public data. Participating research institutions are specialised in different fields and capable of fundamental and applied research. The competences of involved municipalities and water suppliers lie in local water use and protection.

The high number of requests for participation in the project shows the urgency of carrying out the targeted tasks and the transnational need for achieving the objectives. The institutions which are most relevant for the intention of CC-WaterS were selected as partners.

Many partners are public authorities and are in good cooperation with external experts for achievement as well as legal implementation of CC-WaterS' innovative results.

The partnership builds upon cooperation in previous projects, beginning in 1998. Most activities are not just a sequence of national activities, but show a genuine transnational character, since many common methodologies will be jointly developed.
An adequate budget amount is reserved to coordinate and manage the activities of CC-WaterS in all ERDF partners' budgets, in order to guarantee joint cooperation and communication - internally and externally - under a transnational umbrella, which is indispensable for implementing CC-WaterS.
