Paula Paredes, Technical University of Lisbon - Irrigation Demand management as drought mitigation measure - Introduction to ISAREG model Project work packages
  9. 9. 4th Workshop Integrated Drought management Programme in Central and Eastern Europe Wisareg model (Pereira et al, 2003) Irrigation scheduling tool large selection of irrigation methods; soils divided into several layers; results: variety of data Data requirements CROP DATA dates of phenological stages SOIL DATA data for different soil layers CLIMATOLOGICAL DATA humidity, wind, sunshine… Etp and RR Project work packages
  10. 10. 4th Workshop Integrated Drought management Programme in Central and Eastern Europe Project work packages WP4 – Drought risk assessment - A common methodology for drought assessment (based on available meteorological data and climatologic archives) will be developed and adopted. 3rd Training on Drought Risk Assessment Nauplion, Greece, 22nd – 26th November 2010 Lessions learned: How to prepare categorical drought vulnerability/sensitivity map based on natural factors (soil parameters, slope, aspect, groundwater depth, meteorological factors and land use) Risk assessment based on multicriteria Decision analysis
  11. 11. 4th Workshop Integrated Drought management Programme in Central and Eastern Europe Project work packages WP4 – Drought risk assessment - The impacts analyzed from the historical records.
  12. 12. 4th Workshop Integrated Drought management Programme in Central and Eastern Europe Project work packages WP4 – Drought risk assessment - A common methodology for drought assessment (based on available meteorological data and climatologic archives) will be developed and adopted. Drought vulnerability index (DVI) Incorporating: Drought monitoring (SPI) Supply/demand data Impact data Infrastructure
  13. 13. 4th Workshop Integrated Drought management Programme in Central and Eastern Europe Project work packages WP4 – Drought risk assessment - The drought risk and drought vulnerability maps will be developed for the region using GIS techniques. All relevant impact factors (with available data layers) will be considered and appropriately weighted. Vulnerability will be categorized and visualized in relative scale in order to provide decision makers with essential basis for drought management policy options.
  14. 14. 4th Workshop Integrated Drought management Programme in Central and Eastern Europe Project work packages WP4 – Drought risk assessment - Drought vulnerability estimates based on simulations using crop-yield models
  15. 15. 4th Workshop Integrated Drought management Programme in Central and Eastern Europe Project framework: Preparatory work Established network of support institutions and potential project partners Support of international institutions (WMO and UNCCD) Support in preparation of project proposal (prominent advisers)
  16. 16. 4th Workshop Integrated Drought management Programme in Central and Eastern Europe Project framework: Suitable project calls
  17. 17. 4th Workshop Integrated Drought management Programme in Central and Eastern Europe Project framework: Transnational cooperation programme - SEE 4 priority axes: Priority Axis 1 : Facilitation of innovation and entrepreneurship Priority Axis 2: Protection and improvement of the environment Priority Axis 3: Improvement of the accessibility Priority Axis 4: Development of transnational synergies for sustainable growth areas
  18. 18. 4th Workshop Integrated Drought management Programme in Central and Eastern Europe Each priority axes is divided into Areas of Intervention (AoIs). Example for priority axis 2 (most relevant for drought monitoring&management): AoI 2.1: Improve integrated water management and flood risk prevention AoI 2.2: Improve prevention of environmental risks AoI 2.3: Promote cooperation in management of natural assets and protected areas AoI 2.4: Promote energy and resource efficiency Each project should be devoted to one of AoIs. Project framework: Transnational cooperation programme - SEE
  19. 19. 4th Workshop Integrated Drought management Programme in Central and Eastern Europe Each priority axes is divided into Areas of Intervention (AoIs). Example for priority axis 2 (most relevant for drought monitoring&management). Each call has its own priorities. For example, 2nd call didn’t contain AoI 2.1 (integrated water management and flood risk prevention) among priorities. Consequently, projects containing flood risk assessment had little chance for success in this call. Project framework: Transnational cooperation programme - SEE
  20. 20. 4th Workshop Integrated Drought management Programme in Central and Eastern Europe Transnational cooperation programme - SEE - Projects should cover most of cooperation area; projects aiming at smaller, isolated sub-regions have smaller chance of success (in TCP language- projects should have “transnational character” and should be executed by “transnational approach”). - Not only instututions with knowledge and experize should be included in partnership. It is important to have decision-making bodies and institutions, relevant for policies and strategies of regional development on-board.
  21. 21. 4th Workshop Integrated Drought management Programme in Central and Eastern Europe Transnational cooperation programme - SEE 2-step procedure: in case of success in 1st phase, applicant (project lead partner) is constrained to partnership and budget stated in 1st phase. Large deviations might be reason for rejection during 2nd phase. Although it is not difficult to prepare short application for 1st phase, lead partner should approach preparation seriously.
