"Municipalities as integrators and coordinators
in adaptation to climate change"

Results of our online international survey on natural water retention measures

As part of the LIFE-MICACC project, an online survey on natural water retention measures in neighbouring and surrounding countries was carried out between 27th November 2020 and 15th January 2021. The aim of the questionnaire was to assess the type and frequency of climate problems experienced by municipalities in neighbouring countries and the adaptation solutions they use. At the same time, we wanted to use the questionnaire to gauge the interest in the field visits that will take place in summer 2021, and to find out which other languages the Adaptation Guide, which will be completed this year, can be translated into in addition to English. The online survey was first sent to the international (municipal and water) contacts of the MICACC project, and then, with the assistance of the Department for Water Diplomacy and Danube Region Strategy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the survey was forwarded to the relevant Hungarian embassies abroad, to the members of the expert working group of the 14 countries of the Danube river basin, and to the members of the EUSDR flood working group. Almost 400 people filled in the questionnaire, indicating the importance of the topic and the high level of interest shown by the municipalities. The responses to the questionnaire have been summarised in a short report, which is available in English and Hungarian in the Documents library of this website.
