SOS-Water researchers from UPV published a new paper on Hydrological Sciences Journal. In this paper, they present an extension of the eco-engineering decision scaling (EEDS) method to explore trade-offs in agricultural and ecologic metrics at the catchment scale across a range of unknown future hydrological and climate states. The extended EEDS method evaluates current water resource management rules focusing on agricultural and ecologic objectives, identifies climate hazards that make the system fail and assesses climate risk in 3 time horizons for the design of adaptation measures. They apply the method in cthe Serpis River basin, Spain, where 72% of available water is used for agricultural purposes.
Their study contributes to the goal of water resources planning in Spain, which is achieving water security for citizens and future generations and protecting biodiversity and socioeconomic activities.
