Section 1 Call 2020 - Water Management

Basic Information

The Mediterranean is among the most arid regions in the world. Hosting more than 50 percent of the world’s ‘water poor’ population. Water scarcity can only increase in the future and is already becoming an increasingly important limitation to society in the Region. Additionally, Mediterranean countries are particularly vulnerable to climate change, because of the predominance of agriculture in their economies, the scarcity of capital for adaptation measures, their warmer baseline climates and their heightened exposure to extreme events. Rural areas are expected to experience major impacts of climate change on water availability and supply, infrastructure and agricultural incomes, reduced agricultural production and increase food insecurity with socio-economic consequences, such as increasing poverty and migration.
