Practical information

Event Cases

Wetskills Events Wave

The Wetskills organization of the edition is looking for Case Owners, companies/organisations that formulate their case and support the Wetskills programme, see Leaflet for Case Sponsors Wetskills-Romania 2017.

For more information, contact Johan Oost (johan.oost@wetskills.com) or for local companies/organisations in Romania: Laura Stanescu (laura.stanescu@wetskills.com).

Case 1: Climateproof Megacities

Case owner: Hanze University of Applied Sciences

To raise the awareness of climate change, climate models and other tools are used. Floodmodels and heatstressmodels can predict vulnerable areas in the urban dense areas of cities but action has to be taken by stakeholders. How can we improve the engagement of stakeholders? In this wetskills international knowledge exchange tools will be applied to evoke immediate action towards climate change.

Case 2: Ecological rehabilitation of the old riverbed of Baseu river between Stefanesti-Romanesti villages

Case owner: Rijnland Water Authority and Prut-Barlad Water Basin Administration

The Baseu river catchment area in the north eastern part of Romania frequently has a non-permanent flow, which lead to major changes in the hydrological and ecological regime. This resulted in the loss of specific wetland flora and fauna habitats in the area of the Old Baseu. The team is challenged to come up with designs for the Old Baseu, that will lead to a permanent water flow, taking into consideration agriculture, tourism, drinking water access, flood safety, landscape and ecosystem improvement and communication and involvement of stakeholders.

Case 3: Business-wise training

Case owner: World Water Academy
