Présentation
REACT4MED aims to enhance Sustainable Land and Water Management to support increased agropastoral productivity, accelerate technological innovation and dissemination, reverse land degradation, and improve the livelihoods of Mediterranean communities. The specific objectives of REACT4MED towards this strategic goal are
* Capitalize on the scientific and practical knowledge, and critically review Sustainable Land and Water Management practices and approaches
* Identify barriers to apply this volume of knowledge and experience in initiating or sustaining restoration actions and help overcome them at the local scale
* Propose a set of harmonized indicators, including technological, environmental, climate-related, and socio-cultural and economic aspects, that can facilitate broad level assessments
* Develop bottom-up and top-down methodologies and tools that support participatory and scientific decision-making in Sustainable Land and Water Management
* Initiate and support large scale restoration actions with measurable impact, as well as a substantial degree of environmental stewardship and societal improvement
* Enable and promote public and private investment opportunities by developing tools for the environmental and economic cost-effectiveness assessment of restoration potential
* Translate results and lessons learn from the local restoration actions to a policy roadmap for upscaling or/and outscaling Sustainable Land and Water Management
* Communicate and disseminate results to a wide range of audiences and stake holders, and conduct targeted outreach activities to stimulate uptake of the good practices identified and innovations implemented
