Continuing to develop the idea of previously implemented project “Development of regulatory enactments in the field of sustainable rainwater management” funded by Latvian Environmental Protection Fund in 2018, CLEANTECH LATVIA has received approval of another Latvian Environmental Protection Fund project application – “Methodological instructions and design guidelines for the use of sustainable rainwater management solutions”.
The aim of the project is to develop methodological guidelines for rainwater treatment solutions corresponding to the specifics of Latvia, applicable in various typical construction situations, including parking lots of shopping malls and offices, courtyards of apartment buildings, etc., and to develop practical design guidelines for the implemetation of specific solutions.
In result, project will provide technical support on national level and local municipalities planning flood risk reduction measures and, in the long run, promote the use of sustainable rainwater management solutions, improving the resilience of settlements to climate change and reducing pollution of water bodies. To ensure public understanding of the materials created, 2 working group meetings, 10 regional seminars and 2 video materials will be organized.
Project will be implemented in the period from June 1, 2020 till September 30,2021.
