  • The goal with this organization is to get everybody involved as much as possible, as well as increasing the transparency and diminishing the corruption within the governmental system. The Management of the Sustainability certificate will be a the River Basin Forum Level. They will have to decide, which companies are to be awarded with the certificate or not. The voluntary work is managed at a municipality level, so that each community can organize itself. In the following paragraphs, a description of the important points of this figure will be provided.River Basin Forum - A meeting for all the communities involved in the Guadalete river basin- One or two people of each municipality, depending on the size- Discuss issues concerning:- Guadalete River Basin- Sustainability Certificate- Voluntary Work  The Goal of the River Basin Forum is to involve as much as possible the communities in the decision making that concerns the Guadalete River Basin. It also establishes an extra stepping stone between the Regional Government, which will hopefully increase the transparency and the communication between the government the municipalities and therefore the local population as well. Sustainability Certificate - Funded by Greenpeace- Prevent pollution and abuse of Earth’s ocean, land, air and fresh water.- Goals:- Local Products- Smart Energy Management- Recycle, Reuse and Cradle-to-Cradle  The main goal of the Sustainability certificate will be to promote the region as green, sustainable and clean. The small initial funding that would be required for this certificate would be provided by Greenpeace. The group would like get Greenpeace to sponsor this certificate, because one of their main goals is to “prevent pollution and abuse of Earth’s ocean, land, air and fresh water”.The certificate would provide proof to the public if the companies provide local products, if they have a smart energy management, in other words no waste of energy, efficient measures and use of green energy. Also if a company recycles, reuses or has cradle-to-cradle systems, they will be able to have this certificate next to their company name or logo. Each company that would be interested in this certificate would have to pay a small fee each year. This fee would have to be established by the River Basin Forum, but it has to stay small, otherwise nobody would be interested (for example 50 euros every year). The reason for this, is that this certificate, once it becomes a bit popular could yield a large revenue for the companies who doe have the logo.Voluntary Work - Education (awareness)- Schools- Communities- In Field- Cleaning up the river- Mandatory field trip for schools  The voluntary work is a very important part of this vision. Volunteers, organized by the municipality will go to schools and their community, in order to inform the people about the following points:- The environment of the Guadalete River Basin and sustainability- The government, voting and any other issues that might concern the government, in order to try and get them more involved.The in field voluntary work would have as a goal to promote the ideas of “green and clean”. People would go out into the environment, especially the river, in order to clean it up. The schools would have a mandatory field trip, to clean up or research the Guadalete river basin, which would in turn increase the kid’s awareness towards the river and sustainability. Transparency - Information campaigns (awareness)- Promote voting within the local population- Educate children on the governmental system and votes  Finally, the goal of the transparency would be to increase the awareness of the citizens towards their government and decrease corruption. The three points mentioned above would be taken care of by the people doing the individual work. They would not only promote the river’s environment and sustainability, but as well information campaigns about the government and voting. A mandatory class for the school systems will be put into place. This class will be held three times a year (to be discussed by the municipality) and would inform the children about their governmental system, issues it might have and voting as well. Extra information and education concerning this subject will be provided during campaigning and voting periods.

    1. 1. Guadalete River Basin 2025 The Vision of the Future
    2. 2. The Guadalete River Basin: An example for the world where nature comes hand in hand with human activities. The Dancing Parrots
    3. 3. Other Scenarios Low Natural Value Hippy way of Life -Space for river -Helophytes -Less agro-chemicals -Natural Parks Garbage city -Cheap energy solution -More polution -Low education and awareness -Desertification -No proper WWTP -Corruption -Health problems Polluted Wonderland Elysium -Proper WWTP - Population with high education and awareness levels - landscape polllution -Sustainable infrastructures, energy sources and agriculture High Natural Value Low access to money High access to money -Very industrial -City growth -Landscape, light, air, noise pollution - Better money management -Increase of infrastructures Clean and Green for All
    4. 4. Clean and green for all In this case the people are educated and aware of the situation in their government, in order to decrease corruption. Next, natural parks will be expanded, which will be followed by ecotourism. Community based organization, in order to allow transparency in the system. Finally, sustainable energy and infrastructures will be developed further.
    5. 5. Dam with bypass Dam with bypass And hydroelectricity Expansion of natural park WWTP with helophytes
    6. 6. Measures  Create awareness trough education  Prevent corruption  Sustainability certificate  Promote ecotourism  Produce green energy  Improve water quality  Improve nature values  Improve drinking water system
    7. 7. Worked out measures  Increase population of otters (lutra lutra)  Increase natural values  Improve existing dams  Fish passages  Sediment transport  Improve waste water treatment  Improve water quality  Make the local people aware
    8. 8. Community based organization Spain Andalusia •Sustainability Certificate River Basin Forum •Voluntary WorkMunicipality Individuals + Companies

    10. 10. Sustainability Certificate  Funded by Greenpeace  Prevent pollution and abuse of Earth’s ocean, land, air and fresh water.  Goals:  Local Products  Smart Energy Management  Recycle, Reuse and Cradle-to-Cradle
    11. 11. Voluntary Work  Education (awareness)  Schools  Communities  In Field  Cleaning up the river  Mandatory field trip for schools
    12. 12. Transparency  Information campaigns (awareness)  Promote voting within the local population  Educate children on the governmental system and votes
    13. 13. Political Education  4-5 times a year (extra in voting times)  Adjusted to age of the student  Non biased information
    14. 14. Plan B  If the volunteers to not come in, two possible solutions have been looked into:  Enlisting the help of the “Ecologistas en Action” and/or the action group “Delfins”  Getting Universities to help. The students would be provided with free credits for every class or information campaign they do
    15. 15. Dams Possible solutions  Bypasses  Fish ladders - lamprey ladders - Fish lift  Valves for sedimentation
    16. 16. Bypass design
    17. 17. General bypass requirements  Capacity fish passage 2-5% of annual discharge  Lure flow must be strong, but not turbulent  0.8 – 2.0 m/s velocity  Erosion resistant bottom and walls
    18. 18. Waste water treatment • 13 WWTP in the lower part of the river basin. • 5 villages without WWTP • Only 3 WWTP comply with the requirements • 13 WWTP in the upper part of the river basin. • 3 villages without WWTP • Only 3 WWTP comply with the requirements
    19. 19. Possible solution Helophytes filters:  Low costs  Water quality improvement  Habitat for fish and wildlife  Tourism (birdwatching)  Aesthetics and landscape enhancement
    20. 20. Helophytes  Blue flag iris  10- 80cm  Attractive flower  Broad leaf cattail  1.5 – 3 m  Attractive flower  Spatterdock:  5-12 cm high  tolerates fluctuating water levels.
    21. 21. Example: jerez WWTP  Key numbers helophyte filters  47489 m2 land  2.4 million euro  8 year loan from bank  Cost per person per year = 1,59 euro
    22. 22. Otter (Lutra Lutra)  Near threatened species  Top predator  Extremely vulnerable to man made change
    23. 23. Measures  Restore river shore (removal eucalyptus, replace original trees)  Improve water quality  Improve migration possibilities near dams  Expand the population 4 phase strategy
    24. 24. 4 phase strategy
