Article
Full-text available
Over the past years, there has been significant progress in understanding the conservation issues in relation to urban lakes for the sustainable development of the city in Romania. In the face of increasing pressures due to urbanization, urban lakes could play a substantial role in finding alternatives for recreation and connection to nature, which...

Full-text available
Morpho-hydrodynamic changes are one of the major problems affecting the abiotic sphere and the ecological status of water bodies. In order to assess the impact of the works carried out in the Bystroe Channel on the hydrodynamic and hydromorphological conditions of the Chilia and Old Stambul Danube branches, solid scientific based tools are required...

The Chilia branch is the north branch of the Danube River at the Romania-Ukraine border in the Danube Delta; it is a complex system with economic and ecological values. The surface water quality is a major concern and monitoring programs have been developed at the national and international level. The objective of this study was to evaluate the wat...

This paper aims to identify the impact of anthropogenic changes caused by the construction of the Bastroe Canal on the hydrology, hydrochemistry and biodiversity of the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve (DDBR). The paper wants to provide a knowledge tool that can be a working basis for government and local decision-makers due to the special importance...
Article

Project
RainSolutions aims to develop an integrated framework of methodologies to assess NBS for the restoration and rehabilitation of urban water resources systems. The objectives are as follows: a. to identify stakeholder and urban ecosystem needs to inform planning/design (addressing WP1,2&4); b. to review and capitalize upon existing experiences of good practices (addressing WP1–4); c. to simulate the impact of climate variability and existing urban infrastructure on NBS within scaled pilot laboratory and field installations (addressing WP2,3&5); d. to develop an integrated indicator system for the evaluation of key NBS in terms of closing the water quantity and quality gap addressing also socio-economic aspects such as well-being and costs (addressing WP2,4&5); e. to map ecosystem services delivered by NBS for an evaluation of the best technology to implement in different urban contexts to support sustainable water management (addressing WP1–6); f. to create a NBS planning and design framework supported by machine learning to generate recommendations addressing challenges associated with climate resilience and well-being in urban areas (addressing WP5&6); and g. to disseminate the self-sustainable web-based framework in collaboration with national stakeholders fostering the transfer of NBS knowledge and communicate the project impact (addressing WP4&7).
