Welcome at the web presentation of the results of research project “Development of information and data support for design of adaptation measures and longterm planning of water resources considering the climate change effects”, which was investigated by the T. G. Masaryk Water Research Institute, p. r. i., Czech Hydrometeorological Institute and Water Management Development and Construction Inc., which was co-financed by Technology Agency of the Czech Republic in year 2012-2014. The aim of the project was the development of guidance for correct assessment of climate change impacts on water resources, especially in the context of water management and planning. The project outputs include data required to follow the guidance. Specifically, these are the bias-corrected simulations of regional climate models and estimated changes in hydrometeorological variables in the climate model grid and for a set of catchments covering the Czech Republic.

Guidance summarizes the basic principles of climate change scenarios development and impact assessment, in the context of water management and planning especially following the Water Framework Directive. The guidance aims at aiding correct climate change assessment.

Guidance not available in English


Climate change impact assessment on water balance of 130 basins covering the Czech Republic was carried out within the project. This part of web presentation includes maps, figures and data, which can be downloaded for individual catchments or climate model grid box. Detailed description of used methods and uncertainty assessment is included.
