IMPREX : IMproving PRedictions and management of hydrological Extremes (Spain)

Drought Murcia

Titre : IMPREX : IMproving PRedictions and management of hydrological Extremes (Spain)

Pays : Espagne

Date : 2015 - 2019

Objectif (s)
To support the reduction of the vulnerability to extreme hydrological events, and prepare for a future in which the intensity and frequency of disrupting features may be very different from today’s reality.

FutureWater leads the coordination of the “Agriculture and Drought” sectoral Work Package of IMPREX. This WP specifically aims to study and evaluate the use of IMPREX weather forecasts and predictions, climate variability, and drought indicators to assess agricultural drought risk and impacts over four case studies and at the pan-European level. Special emphasis will be placed in : (i) improving our understanding on the relationships between climate variability, hydrological drought indicators, and agricultural production and losses, (ii) developing downscaling methods in order to provide agricultural drought indicators useful at the basin level, (iii) designing appropriate tools and communication/dissemination channels for generating effective and transparent drought alerts, iv) quantifying the impact of changing rainfall, evapotranspiration and atmospheric recycling dynamics on water fluxes, flows, stocks, consumption and the provision of services to agriculture.
