RAINMAN @ 17th EURO-INBO international conference
17. - 20. June 2019 in Lahti, Finland
The 17th EURO-INBO international conference took part from 17th to 20th June 2019 in Lahti, Finland.
RAINMAN partner IMGW (Institute of Meteorology and Water Management National Research Institute) contributed a presentation to Roundtable No 2 “Agriculture and climate change: agroecology, non-point source pollution, water availability”. In the presentation Mariusz Adynkiewicz-Piragas (IMGW) explained the impacts of heavy rain on agricultural areas in Central Europe on the basis of the pilot action from Poland. The presentation was met with great interest. IMGW stressed that heavy rain events are one of the most significant risks for agricultural areas. It is therefore very important to implement risk mitigation measures and to develop risk management tools which are also in line with the Water Framework Directive and the Flood Directive. During the presentation it was recommended that measures have to be chosen on regional level, not on European level, as the circumstances vary tremendously across the continent.
