Work Package 1: Coordination, management and IPR
Leader: Laboratório Nacional de Engenharia Civil (LNEC, Portugal)

WP1 establishes a comprehensive BINGO coordination and management through careful planning and internal communication procedures. It will monitor the progress of each WP and organisation of meetings of the different boards and committees established in BINGO.

Work Package 2: Climate predictions and downscaling to extreme weather
Leader: Freie Universität Berlin (FUB, Germany)

WP2 will suitably downscale decadal climate predictions for the Research Sites, providing ensembles of simulations for the variables relevant to subsequent hydrological modeling and impact assessment for an adequate high spatial and temporal resolution. Key results for end users are spatial maps of return periods and probabilities of dry/wet spells for various durations.

Work Package 3: Integrated analysis of the water cycle
Leader: IWW Rheinisch-Westfälisches Institut für Wasserforschung gemeinnützige GmbH (IWW, Germany)

WP3 starts from WP2 output will perform an integrated analysis of the water cycle for the 6 research sites. The analysis will use a range of hydrological, hydrodynamics and water quality models, in accordance to the specific needs of each site and previous modelling work.

Work Package 4: Assessment of the impacts of extreme weather events
Leader: Laboratório Nacional de Engenharia Civil (LNEC, Portugal)

Using WP2 outputs, WP4 will calculate risk, through risk identification, analysis and evaluation steps, supplying these results to WP5 that will deal with the risk treatment. Objectives of WP4 are the assessment of impacts of climate change extreme events: scenarios of droughts and floods at the six research sites. It will establish indicators designed to identify scenarios that require the antecipation of strategic management measures.

Work Package 5: Developing risk treatment and adaptation strategies for extreme weather events
Leader: KWR WATER B.V. (KWR, The Netherlands)

WP5 will produce a tailored portfolio of adaptation measures that will enable decision makers at the 6 research sites to develop and implement strategies to cope with the impacts of extreme weather events in their own specific situation. WP5 will be developed in straight link with WP6, so that the risk treatment solutions will be co-produced with end users. Some adaptation measures will be tested in the modelling framework, looping into WP3 and WP4. Cost and benefit, socio-economic impacts and policy implications of the different measures will be taken into consideration.

Work Package 6: Ensuring Excellence and Actionable Research

WP6 provides an innovative structure to improve communication among researchers and non-researchers actors. WP6 activities will also support a structured common language for the project and produce design guidelines to create and enhance future collaboration between researchers and end users / organisations.

Work Package 7: Dissemination, communication and exploitation
Leader: Sociedade Portuguesa de Inovação (SPI, Portugal)

WP7 will streamline results to local research sites, removing future implementation barriers; promote meetings, seminars, workshops and several other forums for discussion and dissemination. It will use various communication channels and tools.
