Analysis of the Miño and Limia river basins at a geographical and hydrological level

The aim is to contribute to a better understanding of the International Hydrographic Demarcation of the Miño and Limia river basins, in accordance with the principle of basin unity and with the provisions of Directive 2000/60/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2000 establishing a Community framework for action in the field of water policy in relation to international river basin districts and single hydrological plans.

To carry out actions aimed at obtaining a better knowledge of the river basin district, being relevant for this purpose to carry out a new mapping of the district by adjusting the perspective from the 1:25 to 1,10,000 scale and then to carry out an analysis of the water resources of the basin and its future estimate to 2070-2100 considering climate change.

  • New cartography of the international demarcation at a scale of 1:10,000
  • New water resources inventory considering climate change in three scenarios: 2011-2040, 2041-2070 and 2070-2100


  • Joint cartography of the Miño-Limia international river basin district at a scale of 1:10,000
  • Report on actual historical precipitation and temperature data for the international boundary
  • Downscaling of global and regional model climate data
  • Hydrological modelization considering climate change for the periods 2011-2040, 2041-2070 and 2070-2100
  • Water resources management modelling
  • Report on the analysis and balance of the resources and demands of the different water uses for the different scenarios
