Titre : WAM-ME Water resources management under drought conditions : criteria and tools for conjunctive use of conventional and marginal waters in mediterranean regions

Région : Méditerranée

Code du projet : ICA3-CT-1999-00014 FP5-INCO 2

Durée : From 2000-04-01 to 2003-03-31

Descriptif
Providing water supplies exploiting marginal water sources reduces the necessity of new water reservoirs, minimizes environmental impacts and can be fundamental for a sustainable development of Mediterranean regions, including semi-arid European, North African, and Near East countries. Seven partners from six Mediterranean countries will participate to the proposed project, which aims at improving water resources management and environmental control in drought-prone Mediterranean regions. The criteria for an efficient use of marginal water resources, including the reuse of treated waste water for irrigation and the withdrawal of deep groundwater will be defined. Modelling tools and a Decision Support System (DSS) for the conjunctive use of conventional and marginal waters will be developed. These criteria and tools could support the choice of the preferable mix of long-term and short-term measures to face droughts.
