Monitoring and review of the Guadalquivir river basin management plan

The aim of this project was to bring to light key issues relating to the river basin, put forward suitable measures, and create the Guadalquivir third-cycle river basin management plan 2021-2027 based on this. This included taking into account water balance in various scenarios and the effects of climate change, as well as assessing quality water, the objectives being pursued and protected areas. A series of measurements were also proposed, in coordination with the Committee of Competent Authorities, in addition to a streamlined economic analysis to help with decision-making, based on a cost-benefit analysis. This involved a strategic environmental assessment, which took into account other major national plans, and was done as part of a public participation process (meetings, workshops, training events, etc.).
