Final Report - INECO (Institutional and economic instruments for sustainable water management in the Mediterranean region)

Project ID: 517673
Funded under: FP6-INCO

Abstract

Water availability in the Mediterranean is unquestionably limited. A supply oriented, centralised approach was therefore implemented to meet irrigation and potable water needs, which, however, cannot be sustained simply by an increase in water quantities. As a result, integrated water management was promoted through relevant European directives.

In this context the INECO project, which was funded by the European Commission, aimed to promote capacity building towards constructively engaged integrated water resources' management. This final activity report summarises the project objectives, undertaken activities and obtained results.

Firstly, INECO background and goals are briefly presented. The progress of the three distinct project phases is subsequently analysed. The document closes with an overview of the derived conclusions and the implemented dissemination plan.
