Small water retention measures

Coinciding with the 12th European Conference EUROPE INBO 2014, on 12 November 2014 GWP Central and Eastern Europe is releasing a new video on Small Water retention measures.

The purpose of the video is to provide some basic information about the purpose and benefits of the small water retention measures – a topic which is becoming very popular in the last few years.

Small retention is an adaptive measure within the Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) as it serves to adjust to extreme climate variability; specifically, it helps retain water in the land during wet periods and slows down flood waves during flood periods.

GWP Central and Eastern Europe is exploring the Small Water retention measures in a demonstration project within the Integrated Drought Management Programme in CEE (IDMP CEE), a joint programme of Global Water Partnership (GWP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
