ACQUAOUNT Adapting to Climate change by Quantifying optimal Allocation of water resources and socio-economic interlinkages.
The ACQUAOUNT project aims to improve IWRM and sustainable irrigation through the deployment of innovative tools, smart water services and solutions, for public and private use, while contributing to climate resilience. ACQUAOUNT will develop a suite of innovative tools covering monitoring and control (IoT), interoperability and standardization (WoT), efficient operation and recommendations for water and production efficiency (weather and complex dynamic modelling tools combined with data analytics and a decision-support tool) and smart visualization and data exploration (KPIs-based visualization). The combination of these tools will permit to simulate complex interactions and feedbacks across several time horizons and multiple related environmental and socio-economic dimensions, leading to policy recommendations and CC adaptation strategies.
All these innovations will be demonstrated at large scale in basins of four Mediterranean countries (Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, and Tunisia) where water efficiency is a must to cope with water scarcity and climate change.
