GOWARE: An innovative tool for the management of the drinking water resources at European level

CMCC Webinar |1 April, 2020 – h. 12:30 – 1:30 PM CET

Introducer: Monia Santini, CMCC Foundation, IAFES Division

Moderator: Guido Rianna, CMCC Foundation, REMHI Division

GOWARE (transnational Guide toward an Optimal WAterREgime) is a Decision Support Tool (DST) developed to support the decision-making process through the implementation of innovative practices for drinking water protection and the mitigation of flood and drought risk.

The aim of this webinar is to present the design and the methodological approaches proposed for the operative development of the tool, including the evaluation of the understandability of the analysis’s processes and of their acceptance by stakeholders. This decision support tool is provided with a catalogue of best management practices to handle water issues in different land use contexts, and it allows filtering a subset of best practices by accounting for the relative importance that the user assigns to each characterizing criterion.

GOWARE represents an innovative tool to support users at different levels of planning (operational and strategical) by promoting sustainable land and water management and defining long-term governance activities. Follow-up of GOWARE is ongoing in the context of the recently started TEACHER-CE project, a capitalization effort among PROLINE-CE, the Interreg project that released GOWARE, and other Interreg-CE and EU projects.

To facilitate the tailoring of GOWARE improvements to the needs of end-users, views from them are crucial, thus the Q&A session will consist in crowdsourcing and polling in real-time some feedbacks from the attendants.
