Results


The project results are presented in several journal papers and contributions to international conferences (marked in red in the list below). The theoretical foundations of the Project are presented in two books along with a number of methodological publications, produced either before or during the project lifetime.

For a brief synthesis, please consider the Executive Summary.

A main outcome of the IMRR Project is the Red River geoportal. Access is restricted to stakeholders and institutions involved in the project and the official version is installed on the intranet of IWRP.
