Project: Integrated Water Management in Coastal Drainage Basins: challenges and adaptation strategies within the framework of climate change.

Financed by CIRCLE-MED, the Waterknow project’s objective is to develop decision support tools for integrated management for freshwater resources in the context of climate change (GIEC scenarios A1B and A2). To achieve this, Waterknow has taken a multidisciplinary approach and used the following methodologies: analysis of land use in the drainage areas studied; hydrologic modelling that takes into account the impact of land use and agriculture in the water cycle; modelling of underground water which takes into account the salt water intrusion in aquifers; socio-economic analyses; and finally development of a decision support tool which takes into account the needs of various uses and users of water.
