A brief introduction
The Province is competent authority for ground water management and regional water policy development. Concerning water scarcity and droughts we are responsible for setting regulations for ground water use and nature management. Moreover we are working on adaptation strategies for coping with climate change and sustainable regional development.
We will contribute to the content of this project through best practices and techniques in both policy development and real life cases. At policy level, our region will benefit from this project by strengthening our policies on water management and climate change adaptation by using experiences and best practices from the partners.
South- and East European partners may feed us with their extensive experience in dealing with conflicting water demands in dry climates. Both technical and organisational solutions may be adapted to North-West European settings. In this proces we can team up with other North European partners. On the other hand we can share our experiences with conflicting water demands in regions where rural and urban functions compete for limited resources and space.

This project is cofinanced by the ERDF and made possible by the INTERREG IVC programme
The Interregional Cooperation Programme INTERREG IVC, financed by the European Union’s Regional Development Fund, helps Regions of Europe work together to share experience and good practice in the areas of innovation, the knowledge economy, the environment and risk prevention. EUR 302 million is available for project funding but, more than that, a wealth of knowledge and potential solutions are also on hand for regional policy-makers.
