KLEVER - Climate-optimised drainage management in the operation area emden

Prof. Dr. Ingo Mose, Dr.-Ing. Peter Schaal, Sipl.-Ing. Jan Spiekermann

The KLEVER-project works on a conzept to adjust the drainage management of the lower saxony lowlands to the upcoming difficulties of climate change. Big parts of the inland of the region Emden are below mean sea level, therefor a well working drainage system is is the main precondition for settlement. Together with the Jade Hochschule Wilhelmshaven/Oldenburg/Elsfleth the research group will work on solutions for the region. The period of the project is from 2015 to 1018. It is funded by the BMUB.
