Evidence based assessment of Natural Water Retention Measures (NWRM) for sustainable water management

Contact person

The main objective of EviBAN is to increase the knowledge on how nature based solutions (NBS) can be used in integrated water management to contribute to progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.

Through integrating results from diverse case studies in South Africa, France, Finland and Norway, EviBAN will develop a toolbox for adaptive water management suited for different conditions with respect to climate change, anthropogenic activities and societal change in Europe and beyond.

Partners: Aalto University, ANTEA GROUP, BRGM (the French geological survey), imaGeau, Stellenbosch University, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and SINTEF

EviBAN is funded under the Water JPI 2018 Joint Call - WaterWorks 2017 on “Closing the Water Cycle Gap – Sustainable Management of Water Resources”
