Titre : A decision support system for mitigation of drought impacts in the Mediterranean regions

Région : Méditerranée

Code du projet : IC18970169 FP4-INCO

Durée : From 1997-11-01 to 2001-07-31

Descriptif
The main objective of the research is the development of a Decision Support System (DSS), aiding decision makers in the operation of water supply systems under drought conditions, determining the most effective delivery policies for irrigation ; in particular, the core of DSS will include three connected modules aiming to :
a) identify the regional drought events and determine their characteristics (duration, deficit intensity, etc.) ;
b) determine the most effective irrigation scheduling under drought conditions by using an appropriate crop-water simulation model ;
c) define the operation rules for storage facilities of the water supply system and individuate a set of drought mitigation measures.
A second objective is the identification of the main requisites and institutional framework for developing an appropriate scheme of Drought Watch System for Mediterranean countries.
