New article on roles in participatory approaches for adaptation planning
River basin management affects the citizens living in them. A new article by Dr. Steven Libbrecht in the December 2016 issue of the magazine Sustainable Mediterranean addresses how stakeholders can be involved in river basin adaptation planning. The issue includes publications from the Summer University of Samothraki 2016, with a focus on the integrated management approaches for biosphere reserves and other designated areas.
Within the framework of the summer school, Dr. Steven Libbrecht presents the BeWater approach and he reflects on how a partnership of a local party knowing the basin and the stakeholders, a scientific expert party and a stakeholder engagement expert party can successfully work together to operationalise the approach.
