RECONECT aims to rapidly enhance the European reference framework on Nature Based Solutions (NBS) for hydro-meteorological risk reduction by demonstrating, referencing, upscaling and exploiting large-scale NBS in rural and natural areas.
Land use planning
In an era of Europe’s natural capital being under increased cumulative pressure from intensive agriculture, fisheries and forestry, and urban sprawl, RECONECT will stimulate a new culture of co-creation of ‘land use planning’ that links the reduction of hydro-meteorological risk with local and regional development objectives in a sustainable and financially viable way.
To do that, RECONECT draws upon a network of carefully selected Demonstrators and Collaborators that cover a wide and diverse range of local conditions, geographic characteristics, institutional/governance structures and social/cultural settings to successfully upscale NBS throughout Europe and Internationally.
To achieve these ambitious goals, the RECONECT consortium brings together an unprecedented transdisciplinary partnership of researchers, industrial partners (SMEs and large consultancies) and authorities/agencies at local and watershed/regional level fully dedicated to achieve the desired outcomes of the project.
The role of HydroLogic
HydroLogic Research will use the HydroNET platform and crowd sourcing app WaterDetective to provide weather forecast data, mobile monitoring and smart data visualisations. Using our IT products, we want to help the project locations to monitor their local areas. Our HydroNET products are a part of the ICT platform that will be built for the Reconect platform.
