The event, which took place in the Auditorium of the Portuguese Environment Agency (APA) in the Centre, brought together a diverse group of experts, authorities and stakeholders, with the aim of highlighting the results and progress made during the project.
Pre-defined Project 3 aims to increase the Ceira River Basin's resilience and capacity to respond to climate change by implementing concrete measures to adapt to climate change at local level. The project is made up of three main components: hydrological, ecosystem and cultural.
During the day it was possible to discuss and share information on the climate change adaptation measures implemented locally. The presentations covered topics such as the rehabilitation of riparian galleries, hydrological models for flood forecasting, good river rehabilitation practices and assessing the impacts of climate change on the river basin.
In addition, projects to rehabilitate socio-cultural infrastructures and strategies to boost the region's heritage were discussed.
The event emphasised the stakeholders' commitment to tackling the challenges of climate change in the Ceira River Basin and promoting sustainable water management practices.
The closing session was attended by Karina Asbjørnsen, First Secretary of the Norwegian Ambassador to Portugal, and Eduardo Pinheiro, Secretary of State for Planning.
The final event of Pre-defined Project 3 demonstrates the ongoing commitment and collaboration to address the challenges of climate change in the Ceira River Basin and shows how the initiatives funded by EEA Grants Portugal are having an impact and making a difference in the community and the environment.
