A brief introduction

Romania has vast exp. in monitoring and control of extreme events at nat. level by observations, forecasts and case studies performed by NMA. The agrometeo. activity undergoing within NMA, integrates important and complex issues e.g. evolution of the water supply of soils and vegetation state of the crops with respect to the meteorological evolution parameters. Final objective is to provide better decision support man. NMA's agrometeo. observation network provides weekly in-situ monitoring. Info. is collected, analyzed and disseminated to decision makers and regional stakeholders as early-warning and advisories. During extremely dry years this service enables monitoring of drought dynamics and assessing the spatial extent and intensity of the drought phenomenon.

The NMA influences regional policies e.g. by developing approaches to diss. forecasts to authorities and community, respond through effective emergency planning, adaptation analyses, recomm. and developm. of man. options.
At national and regional levels, adaptation strategies are needed to offer the policy support for local adaptation activities and to ensure that such activities are pursued in a cost-effectiveness and sustainable manner.

The main contributions of NMA to the project concern the exchange of information, methodologies and tools between institutions and experts working on disaster-risk man. and climate change for diminishing the impacts of natural disasters and improving the sustainability of development process. Increased recognition within internat. cooperation and coordination could generate feasible low cost procedures for Romania to approach and solve regional and local problems, especially in the case of calamities produced by extreme meteorological phenomena like droughts. Through WATER CoRe we aim at making decision makers and regional stakeholders sensitive to possible consequences of climate change and to offer suggestions in taking appropriate adaptation and mitigation options.

This project is cofinanced by the ERDF and made possible by the INTERREG IVC programme


The Interregional Cooperation Programme INTERREG IVC, financed by the European Union’s Regional Development Fund, helps Regions of Europe work together to share experience and good practice in the areas of innovation, the knowledge economy, the environment and risk prevention. EUR 302 million is available for project funding but, more than that, a wealth of knowledge and potential solutions are also on hand for regional policy-makers.
