Water, Wetland and Aquatic Ecosystem Research - LINKS

This page intends to be a pointer between ongoing projects of the Fourth Framework Programme's Environment & Climate programme of the European Union and related general information. Freshwater represents a vital strategic resource for human society. Desertification and related quality loss of landscape are threats to our society. Freshwater is used to produce drinking water, food, energy, industrial products, and for transportation and recreation. The ecological services provided by terrrestial and aquatic ecosystems include the regulation of hydraulic and biogeochemical cycles, the detoxification of contaminants and habitat support. These areas of R&D have been taken up in the Fifth Framework Programme under the Key Action "Sustainable management and quality of water".

High quality data and appropriate project management are not only important in the project life cycle but ultimately facilitate dissemination and project results.See an example, from another research area, which type of support could be provided in Europe. - Your guide to Oceanographic and Marine Data
