The meeting took place in the offices of Cornellà de Llobregat and was attended by Eduardo Martínez, Chiara Cosco and Jaume Amorós from Cetaqua, Pablo Sánchez from Aquatec and Erle Kristvik from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).

The organisations responsible for the project in Barcelona explained to Kristvik the methodology for assessing flood damage in urban areas that will be applied in the Badalona case study. Moreover, Kristvik explained the activities that they propose to carry out in Bergen. The purpose of the meeting was to find ways of collaboration between both teams and establish synergies for the development of the project.

The main objective of the project BINGO, which is funded by Horizon 2020 program, is to analyse the impact of climate change on the integral water cycle by providing information on different future scenarios and, at the same time, proposing solutions to improve the resilience of cities regarding these impacts.
