eGROUNDWATER - Citizen science and ICT-based enhanced information systems for groundwater assessment, modelling and sustainable participatory management

About Us

The overall objective of eGROUNDWATER is to support sustainable participatory groundwater management in the Mediterranean regions through the design, testing and assessment of enhanced information systems (EIS). Innovative EISs integrating citizen science and ICT-based tools will be designed and tested to improve the understanding of groundwater systems and, with the support of modelling and participatory approaches, engage stakeholders in the co-development of sustainable groundwater.

OUR IMPACT

Goals

- Evaluate information systems on groundwater resources and uses in PRIMA-PS countries (Morocco, Portugal, Algeria and Spain) and identify gaps in information collection and post-processing to enhance information systems. - Develop innovative ICT-based tools for enhanced information acquisition using citizen science techniques. - Improve existing groundwater modelling tools and enabling the use of improved models. - Develop improved participatory groundwater management strategies, supported by the enhanced information system (EIS) and groundwater flow modelling, and management tools. - Analyse the potential socio-economic impacts examining how it may affect the ways in which water is shared among users; how rules are enforced and how users, managers and other stakeholders learn and interact with each other. - Assess the institutional transitions and capacity building actions required to reverse current unsustainable practices’ effects and to encourage the participation of stakeholders and the use of different data and sources of information. - Apply the ICT-based tool in PRIMA-PS countries and study the potential for replication in other case study areas.
