Offer Description

DRYvER is an EU H2020 project that aims at investigation how biodiversity, ecosystem functions, ecosystem services and their values in drying river networks are directly and indirectly altered by climate change through empirical and modelling work at relevant spatial and temporal scales. Furthermore, DRYvER will provide knowledge-based strategies and tools for cost-effective adaptive management of drying river networks in the EU and worldwide. The whole project is focused at the network scale, considering 6 cases studies in the EU (plus 3 more in South America) and results obtained will be used to derive patterns at the EU scale. The University of Barcelona developing a conservation priority exercise for decision-making at network scale based on data obtained across the whole project (biodiversity, ecosystem processes, and ecosystem services), and considering current and future drying patterns. The results of this exercise will be implemented in a user-friendly interface (e.g., shiny app) to make it accessible and useful to stakeholders. The app will let final users control basic parameters such as the type of NBSs and additional measures to be considered or the objectives for which these measures are implemented (e.g. maintaining ecosystem services alone, or integrated management with biodiversity). The job will consist on developing this interface with the information obtained from the 6 case studied networks and make it as flexible as possible to potentially include future networks.
