STELLA approved for funding

The inter- and transdisciplinary research project STELLA (STorylines of coupled socio-Economic and cLimatic drivers for Land use and their hydrological impacts in Alpine catchments) has been approved for funding by the Austrian Climate Research Programme (ACRP) at the end of 2013. STELLA aims at providing a decision support for stakeholders dealing with land use planning and flood prevention by investigating the hydrological impacts of changing climatic conditions and socio-economic patterns. Storylines of coupled socio-economic and climatic drivers resulting in land use patterns will be developed considering the global assumptions of the IPCC RCPs as well as potential regional peculiarities.
