natural
water production

Precipitation is the only sustainable water source in a watershed. Water scarcity occurs when more water is used than is supplied via precipitation. The new theme natural water production started in 2019 and aims at enhancing precipitation to make more fresh water available. The key to enhancing precipitation is to increase evaporation and increase in this way water recycling in a watershed.

To make this vision a reality, a strong interdisciplinary program is under construction, including disciplines like meteorology, hydrology, forestry and water technology.
