Matching Needs and Knowledge in NSR within Water and Climate Change


The WaterCAP-Taskforce accumulated knowledge and experience on water and climate change from multiple countries and sectors in the North Sea Region. This was gained through the former WaterCAP cluster project, and incorporated a new area of aquatic resource management covered by the LNS. The WaterCAP taskforce partnership became a comprehensive knowledge base for the North Sea Region and made available to stakeholders through the transnational taskforce. The project was used as a springboard for reacting to North Sea Region water needs for new strategic programmes as anticipated by the Europe 2020 Strategy.

Background and Aim

WaterCAP-taskforce aimed to:

  • disseminate Interreg expertise from the WaterCAP cluster project and the LNS project transfered into practice to relevant North Sea Region stakeholders. Through a number of locally present Mobile Transnational Taskforces, the experiences and regional solutions from the former projects were transferred and put into practice in new regions of the North Sea Region. These taskforces synthesized the knowledge from the WaterCAP cluster and the LNS project and set up a thorough communication process and approach to the regional capacity building regarding climate change adaptation.

  • Knowledge cloud on WaterCAP-taskforce thematic issues and available experts with their expertise and field of competences
  • Database of available expertise and field of competences of the experts within the WaterCAP-taskforce consortium
  • Process tool to frame the adaptation process
