Alpine rivers are working for us

HyMoCARES Budget and Priority

The HyMoCARES project is co-financed by the European Union via the Interreg Alpine Space Programme and led by the Civil Protection Agency of the Autonomous Province of Bolzano (IT).  ERDF co-finances HyMoCARES with 2.103.433, 37 euros. The duration of the project is 3 years, from November 2016 to October 2019. There are 13 partners, coming from Austria (2), Germany (2), France (2), Italy (4), Slovenia (1) and Switzerland (2);  besides 37 observers are involved.

The HyMoCARES project foresees to develop a conceptual framework, and operational tools, comprising novel methods, to integrate Ecosystem Services (ES) in Alpine river basin planning and management, with a special focus on factors affecting river hydromorphology, while ensuring integration of local and basin scales. The project will identify actual planning, management, operational activities, where the proposed approach can be applied, and will collaborate directly with relevant actors, both public and private, in order to ensure proper transfer of project outputs, and thus a tangible real-scale impact.
