- A better understanding of tradeoffs, synergies, and nested interdependencies across the WEF Nexus components at different spatial scales, from the whole Mediterranean region, through the river basins scale, to the farm scale
- A better characterization of opportunities and constraints to the implementation and successful uptake of multi-sectoral WEF portfolios aimed at improving agricultural and environmental sustainability, explicitly accounting for local stakeholders and global events/policies;
- Improved WEF portfolios aimed at increasing the resilience of the agricultural sector supported by deep engagement with relevant stakeholders including farmers, local business representatives, public authorities, NGOs, policy makers, and citizens;
- Maximise the project’s impact by fostering the dissemination of knowledge and promoting dialogue, learning, and understanding between sectors, policy makers and stakeholders as well by supporting the acceleration and exploitation of project innovations throughout the Mediterannean region via partner agencies such as EIT Climate-KIC4
Project Management will ensure the implementation of the project’s strategy and operation, its administrative and financial aspects, the risk and data management.
Future Scenarios generation analyzes Demographic and Climatic Conditions, Food and Energy demand and supply scenarios, and Ecosystem services value at the Mediterranean level.
Macroeconomic Models for the Mediterranean Region, Economic Value of Marine Services as source for Potable Water will be evaluated and the portability of solutions to other contexts assessed.
Meso Level Models identify possible WEF portfolios of standard Water Supply options, new Water and Food production technologies, and plan portfolios under current and projected Water Conditions.
Micro Level models show the potential of innovations integrating aquaculture with agriculture to maximize the productivity of a Unit Water in terms of Crop Outcomes and assess its upscaling.
Stakeholder Engagement and Interaction will embed their perspective using Case Studies and Multi Actor Working Groups, to promote co- creation and learning, impact and Capacity Development.
Multi Stakeholder Outreach and targeted materials will ensure the dissemination and communication of results, along with Science Policy outreach and Knowledge Transfer at Mediterranean level.
