The aim of the first stakeholder workshop in the Ebro focus region was to gain information on the needs and perceptions of stakeholders in adaptation planning with regard to the possibilities of multi-model based information.
Held at the Confederación Hidrográfica del Ebro, stakeholders from several government agencies and different research institutions took part along with a representative of the local irrigation community. After introducing the information to be generated by the multi-model ensemble in this project, we discussed the potential use and ways of presenting this information, including the co-construction of Bayesian network structures. As a key vector of showcasing this information, a first draft of the planned data portal was presented and discussed.
Due to the diverse backgrounds of the stakeholders involved, the discussions gave insight into various perspectives and problems they are facing in the wake of climate change impacts on water availability.
