Mission

The aim of the project is the development of innovative and sustainable concepts for urban water management in Kazakhstan, supported by digital simulation tools for the prevention, protection, and prediction of negative impacts of climate change and urbanisation on the local and regional water resources.


TERESA will develop nature-based solutions for urban catchments by combining the advantages of sustainable urban drainage (SUDS) and managed aquifer recharge (MAR) systems. The multifunctional solutions will reduce the stormwater runoff and increase groundwater recharge for the mitigation of urban flooding and protection of groundwater-dependent urban ecosystems.
