AquaMount – Multi-risk of water scarcity in mountain regions

AquaMount’s main objective is to improve decision-making processes for current water management and future adaptation within the context of changing climate- and socio-economic conditions of water scarcity. This objective involves the assessment of future conditions of unbalanced water availability vs water demand and the related cross-sectoral impacts. To achieve such an objective, mountain case studies of Trentino-Alto Adige and the Maloti-Drakensberg area in Lesotho-South Africa will be considered allowing comparative studies and a better comprehension of biophysical and socio-economic factors driving water scarcity in different mountain contexts for climate change adaptation. Moreover, the project aims to support cross-fertilisation between the two case studies for knowledge transfer and mutual improvements on water management through synergies and scientific collaboration between the Institute for Earth Observation of Eurac Research and the United Nations University - Institute for Environment and Human Security in Bonn (Germany).

The project is financed by the Autonomous Province of Bolzano-Bozen (Bando di concorso mobilità di ricercatrici e ricercatori 2020)
