RISC_ML aims to “design joint measures aimed at prevention, preparedness, prediction and better management of extreme events, such as floods and droughts, in the Miño-Lima international river basin district in order to mitigate their effects. This project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the Interreg V-A Spain-Portugal Programme (POCTEP) 2014-2020”.
A better understanding of the international river basin district, the establishment of mechanisms for joint drought management and flood early warning will allow for greater preparedness and response capacity in the territory for floods. This is why this project would not be viable without the explicit cooperation of the responsibe basin organisations from both States, as well as of the research centers in the field.
To carry out actions aimed at obtaining a better knowledge of the hydrographic demarcation, it is appropriate to carry out a new mapping of the demarcation by redefining the existing perspective from the 1:25,000 to 1,10,000 scale and then to carry out an analysis of the water resources of the basin and its future estimation to 2070-2100 scenario, considering climate change.
