Knowledge Base Urban Rivers | baseRiU
The Knowledge Base Urban Rivers | baseRiU aims at collecting, analysing and drawing lessons from different and sustainable ways of addressing the phenomenon of urban rivers. To this end, it will cooperatively make use of multi- and interdisciplinary approaches to promote the exchange with public and private entities concerned with urban development, sustainability and the impact of land take on the hydrological systems.
Completing these tasks gives the baseRiU a framework for understanding how people and patterns of land use impact natural systems, in general, and rivers under urban pressures, in particular. Together, the understanding, focus, and organization help researchers of CIDATE systematically identify patterns, make connections, interpret data, explain findings and develop new research projects.
baseRiU will consolidate and expand the knowledge on urban rivers, including a theoretical framework and the capitalization of good practices, to act as a home base for different approaches, as the recently approved network CITIZEN SCIENCE AND CO-CREATION FOR REGENERATION OF URBAN RIVERS AND MITIGATION OF RISKS – RUN, Red Cyted, 01/2020 – 12/2024 with 9 Ibero-American partners.
baseRiU will systematically establish the scientific and technical basis needed for provoking changes in approaching urban and environmental development with particular concern on urban rivers, backing it with citizen science and participatory processes. This enables CIDATE to respond in a timely manner to emerging research and policies needs and opportunities, along with providing support to riverain communities in the development of recommendations on policies, strategies and courses of action. In the light of the above, it is considered necessary to create a sustainable linkage between the theoretical and applied aspects of research that incorporates issues of scientific research, technological innovation, training and teaching, as well as methodologies and instruments of spatial planning.
