Section 1 Call 2020 - Nexus

Basic Information

The economic uses of natural resource such as water and land in the Mediterranean region are constrained by scarcity, climatic conditions and demographic pressures. Conflicts between uses and between different stakeholders, e.g. water use for agriculture, urban/industrial use and energy generation, can arise and undermine the potential for economic development and social cohesion. A Water-Ecosystem-Food Nexus approach that seeks for an optimal and fair allocation of resources can provide solutions to these conflicts and ensure more sustainable development.
