Research Project:
Mediterranean Drough Preparedness and Mitigation Planing (Medroplan)
Research Areas
  • Agricultural policy,
  • Applied economics
The final objective of the Project is to provide Guidelines for Drought Preparedness Plans and the Framework for the setting up of a Drought Preparedness Network for the Mediterranean countries. The main contribution provided by these guidelines will be their adaptation to the physical and socio-economic environment of the Mediterranean countries and their elaboration following a common methodology. The overall objective of the proposed project is to increase the scientific background and knowledge on droughts, the types of drought, their onset and end, their frequency of occurrence, the water resources availability and water demand in relation to the climate, the water shortage observed and the impacts of water shortage caused by droughts in the six Parther countries. The hydrological drought and the agronomic drought, that mainly affects Mediterranean rainfed agriculture, will be differentiated.
