FCT/UNL - The FCT / UNL research group is integrated in the Watersheds research group, part of the Marine and Environmental Sciences Centre (MARE). The group is dedicated to research in the scientific field of water resources management, with particular emphasis on hydrological studies, assessment of precipitation and runoff, study of water systems in dams and assessment of water quality in inland water systems. The work is supported by the use of information systems and mathematical modeling tools for water systems, particularly in the components of hydrological, hydrodynamic and water quality modeling. Other research areas that have been explored are environmental assessment and ecological risk studies, global environmental change, influence of climate change on the availability and quality of water resources, and the study of technological tools for exploration and monitoring of water resources.
The team of FCT / UNL is the coordinator of GestAqua.AdaPT, therefore participating in all project tasks; in particular, and according to the team's skills they develop: the hydrodynamic and water quality modeling, the definition of adaptation strategies and the dissemination and communication of the project.
CESAM - The Center for Environmental and Marine Studies (CESAM) is one of Associated Laboratories located at the University of Aveiro. The earth's surface processes team has the mission of promoting research in area of hydrological studies of CESAM, looking for an integrated assessment of local impacts and downstream land use (and its changes) in the processes taking place on the earth’s surface and surface waters, thus advancing the scientific basis for the sustainable use of land and water resources in a context of global change.
The CESAM team participates in this project mainly in the hydrological modeling and the definition of adaptation strategies.
Águas de Lisboa e Vale do Tejo (ALVT) - The Lisboa e Vale do Tejo multi-municipal of water supply and sanitation results from the integration of 8 multi-municipal systems was created by Decree-Law No. 94/2015, which includes the Water Supply and Sanitation System of central Alentejo established by Decree-Law No. 130 / 2002. The management system was delegated to the company EPAL, SA according to the same Decree-Law. The system covers 86 municipalities in an area corresponding to 32,9% of Portugal and a population of 1,1 million in the water supply activity and about 3,7 million inhabitants in wastewater sanitation activities. The AdCA was responsible for the management of water abstraction for human consumption in the reservoirs of Monte Novo and Vigia, the case study of this project.
The participation of LVT this project is under implementation of environmental monitoring tasks of water supply systems, as well as the characterization of operation and consumption requirements associated with these water systems.
Vestlandsforsking - Western Norway Research Institute has conducted research on sustainable development and climate policy in 30 years with a particular focus on the local and regional level of governance. We are doing research within the topics of sustainable tourism, sustainable mobility, climate change adaptation, climate change mitigation and industrial ecology. The projects are funded by the EU, Research Council of Norway, Public bodies in Norway and private business in Norway on an equal share.
A equipa do Vestlandsforsking participa neste projecto principalmente no âmbito da definição de estratégias de adaptação, integrando a participação de stakeholders.
