WATER CHANGE (Medium and long term water resources modelling as a tool for planning and global change adaptation. Application to the Llobregat Basin) is a three year partnership project that started in January 2009. WATER CHANGE is supported financially by the EU LIFE+- Environmental Policy & Governance programme.

WATER CHANGE aims to tackle global change, including climate change caused by greenhouse gases emissions, changes in land use and water demand, focusing on the impacts that these changes may have on water resources, regarding to both water quantity and quality. The final objective is to propose adaptation measures to face the impacts derived from these future changes.

Within this project, a methodology and a generic tool will be developed, which will be tested and validated through their application to the Llobregat river basin, in Catalunya, in the north-east of Spain.

Another important challenge will be to improve cooperation between different entities, to optimise efforts and to share knowledge between research and development groups, in order that it guarantees the applicability of the established methodology and the modelling system that will be developed to integrate data and models.

The established methodology, the available tool and the results that will be obtained from this project, represent a valuable support for policy makers regarding the strategies to implement on new policies in order to face global change impacts on water resources.
