|The BINGO project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme, under the Grant Agreement number 641739.|
BINGO was built around six research sites that represent challenges in terms of water management options and approaches. They have been selected based on relevant criteria (areas with expected strong impacts from climate change, previous R&D knowledge, end users in need for solutions, high potential for innovation and replication, competing demands) and covering a representative range of conditions.
There was a large variability of situations that BINGO tackled, both from the climate scenarios and the water cycle changes perspectives. For instance, water supply is indeed an activity of strategic importance to society; BINGO was able to understand how lakes, reservoirs, rivers and groundwater, in Northern and Southern Europe, are likely to be impacted by climate change, and subsequently evaluate the risks and produce tailored adaptation measures.
