The first Spanish case study workshop (March 2019) revealed an important knowledge gap in some of the key agents and, fundamentally, a terminology barrier to communication between the concept and how can we refer to it in the technical and scientific literature.
The overall results of the study indicate that the average respondent was less likely to pick grey infrastructure solutions if presented with a BGI solution to flooding. This suggests that the respondents are more willing to pay for a flood risk reduction project if it comes from a BGI solution as opposed to a grey infrastructure solution.
ALICE is using the k.LAB
technology to connect the scientific knowledge generated by different project partners.
Within the ALICE project, we have researched the complex interdependencies between human and natural agents and processes across terrestrial, riverine and estuarine realms.
the Environmental Hydraulics Institute of the University of Cantabria ‘IHCantabria’, coordinator of the European Project ALICE, and the Basque Center for Climate Change (BC3), show how Blue and Green Infrastructure Networks (BGINs) can prevent natural disasters while assuring the provision of ecosystem services.
