German and Czech stakeholders together with leading European scientists met in Prague to discuss their perceptions of uncertainty in flood and water quality management.

Objectives of the Workshop:

 

Major questions to discuss during the group discussions:

  1. What are the realistic ways / strategies to cope with uncertainties, or to reduce uncertainties: in flood protection (also in view of climate change), and in management of water quality?
  2. What is the role of research in coping with uncertainty in water management? What should research do in order to support water managers?

Organization of the workshop:

The Workshop was organized as a combination of plenary presentations (12 invited scientists) in the morning and afternoon discussions in two monolingual break-out groups: (1) Czech stakeholders + scientists, (2) German stakeholders + scientists. The two groups should discuss the same issues of uncertainty.

Languages:

Presentations during the plenary sessions were in English, with simultaneous translation to German and Czech. Questions and comments were possible in English, Czech and German. Group discussions were held in Czech (group 1) and German (group 2).
