Regional Water Resources Management for Sustainable Protection of Waters in Germany
Regional answers to global challenges
Growing cities, changes in land use and climate change: Water management is facing a variety of challenges which call for new approaches when it comes to the preservation, use and management of Germany’s ground- and surface water. That is why the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has launched the funding measure “Regional Water Resources Management for Sustainable Protection of Waters in Germany – ReWaM”. One of ReWaM’s key goals is to better reconcile the use of our water bodies with their protection. Insights gained from research are intended to support water managers over the long term and to provide them with new methods, tools and foundations for decision-making. The ultimate goal is to contribute to the sustainable development of water bodies and to a regional water resources management system.
