19 April 2017
Radmila Milačič, Tea Zuliani and Janja Vidmar (JSI) attended the Second Slovenian congress on waters held in Podčetrtek. 19-20 April, 2017, and Radmila gave a presentation entitled "Elements in water and sediments of the Sava River under high and low water levels".
Handbook about the Souss-Massa river basin
27 March 2017
A new book called The Souss‐Massa River Basin, Morocco is published by Springer. It attempts to explore novel solutions to long-standing problems related to water management and offers some novel approaches to dealing with these growing problems on the example of Morocco. Co-edited by Dr. Redouane Choukr‐Allah (IAV), Globaqua Member. The book provides a comprehensive analysis of water resources in the Souss-Massa river basin in southwestern Morocco and lists novel water management approaches to narrowing the gap between water supply and demand.
GLOBAQUA on YouTube
15 January 2017
A dedicated YouTube channel was created to disseminate the whole video material produced along the project. A growing number of short videos are published in the "GLOBAQUA" playlist. Among the others, you can find a video presenting the main aims and objectives of the project, including short interviews to our Coordinator and to each Module Leader. In addition, 4 videos describing the main features of some project case studies (Adige, Anglian, Ebro, Evrotas) as well as a video showing the outcomes of our last training course on the use of stable isotopes held in Ljubljana (Slovenia) last October.

GLOBAQUA at Water JPI on policy impacts from water research activity
30 November 2016
Damià Barceló (IDAEA-CSIC) gave an oral presentation entitled "Impact in Policy of RDI activities on water research" including GLOBAQUA experience. This workshop was organised by JPI in Vienna (Austria) on 30th November and was aiming to alignment of on-going projects about emerging Pollutants including pathogens.
Defining ecosystem services with local stakeholders through participative workshops
15 November 2016
GLOBAQUA defined with local stakeholders, relevant ecosystem services (ESs) for each case study area. This task included the preparation of an elicitation stakeholder workshop during 2015/16 in each GLOBAQUA case study (i.e. Evrotas in Greece, Adige in Italy, Sous Massa in Morocco, Ebro in Spain, Anglian in the UK and Sava in Slovenia) in close co-operation between case study leaders and Alterra.
Training on using stable isotopes to investigate hydrological processes
13 October 2016
The training course “The use of stable isotopes in investigations of hydrological processes” was organized by JSI in Ljubljana, Slovenia from 10.10.-13.10.2016. 35 participants from Germany, Hungary, Serbia, USA, UK and Slovenia attended the event. The training course was designed for researchers (master, doctoral and postdoctoral level) and other scientists interested in the use of stable isotopes and other tracers in hydrological studies.
GLOBAQUA at EcoBalance on valuation of ecosystem services
27 September 2016
Philippe Ange Ker Rault (Alterra) will give an oral presentation at EcoBalance 2016 "Responsible Value Chains for Sustainability" which was held in Kyoto, Japan, from the 3rd to the 6th October 2016. The presentation was focused on results obtained in the frame of Globaqua and was entitled “Participative valuation of ecosystem services of aquatic ecosystems – 6 case study area across Europe”.
New GLOBAQUA toolbox to measure river ecosystem functioning
01 August 2016
The GLOBAQUA toolbox consists on a critical and synthetic compilation of methods to measure ecosystem functioning in rivers, which can be adapted to different objectives, situations, budgets and levels of expertise. The toolbox includes a description of the main characteristics of each method, the aspects of the ecosystem they address, the environmental stressors they are sensitive to, possible difficulties in their implementation, as well as their general advantages and disadvantages. Current limitations, potential improvements and future steps in the development of the toolbox are also discussed. The toolbox is tailored for scientists as well as for routine monitoring by water managers. Our ultimate purpose is to contribute to a more functional perspective in river research and management. The toolbox is openly available and will be updated continuously through the inputs of GLOBAQUA researchers and other contributors.
