Given the specific nature of the Mediterranean region, water scarcity and documented progressive degradation of groundwater quality poses hazardous environmental, economic and social threats to several Mediterranean countries, with a significantly increased risk of political conflicts around the limited availability of water resources.

the Stream analysis.
Due to continued changes in drivers and pressures, traditional management practices alone are no longer sufficient. STREAM project is based on the principle that research shall be driven by the priorities of a diverse group of stakeholders, enabling substantial co-learning and identification of robust, innovative and effective solutions for addressing sustainable water resources management in water-stressed areas.
«The STREAM project will lay a solid foundation for improved resilience and security of water resources contributing to a transition in water governance, by coupling socio-economic and environmental dimensions of sustainable reservoir management.»
