OUR IMPACT

Goals

The GOTHAM Tool (GTool) will allow to: -PO1. Develop a user-driven Groundwater Governance Framework (GGF) that could be applied in all the Mediterranean countries -PO2. Carry out a comprehensive analysis and a complete diagnostic of the water balance and water quality dynamics in Mediterranean groundwater bodies -PO3. Determine the best alternatives for groundwater quality and quantity improvement -PO4. Effectively implement a set of economic policy instruments in groundwater management -PO5. Predict future water demand and drought events

Objectives

The overarching objective of the GOTHAM project is to develop and validate a user-driven tool that enables effective groundwater governance to ultimately preserve the quantity and quality of this strategic resource in the Mediterranean basin.The GOTHAM Tool (GTool) uses an integrated methodological approach that targets optimal allocation of water resources from an environmental, social and economic perspective, including stakeholder knowledge, priorities and behaviour

Impact Pathway

1- Water Saving solutions: Innovative earth observation and ICT tools-based, Decision Support Systems for planning adaptation to global changes and anticipating droughts 2- Land and water sustainability: - New modelling routines for determining the basic components of the water cycle, including economic, social and technical aspects - Cost-effective and high-efficiency managed aquifer recharge and retention measures for floodplain renaturalization 3- Water Governance system: Development and review of water rights systems –ensuring allocations for all water users are based on up to date knowledge of the overall water balance, including that needed to sustain ecosystem
