NRP 61 Sustainable Water Management
The National Research Programme “Sustainable Water Management” (NRP 61) developed scientific foundations and methods for sustainable management of water resources, which are under increasing pressure. NRP 61 determined the effects of climate and social changes on these resources and identified the risks and future conflicts associated with their use. The NRP developed strategies for ensuring sustainable and integrated water resources management also in the future.
